Religio-political stuff: Jessica has pointed out to me some photographs of the recent protest against “disengagement” at the Western Wall. As soon as I did the mental guesswork of what it must have been actually like, my reaction was “Wow!” Getting about 7% of a country to show up at a single event is no small feat.
Also, Barry pointed out to me“Rival child lamas grow up and into political storm”, which is about how China is messing with Buddhism in Tibet. (They are not above messing with Catholicism, either.)
Since today is Soy Bean Day, I declare today’s weird thing to be Soy Vay. I cannot invent a pun like this. Be amused.
