Who? Owen or the Dalai Lama? And why would you think that either one had been misquoted?
I kind of think of the Dalai Lama like a president: respect the position, if not the man himself. I know this guy has been through a lot, and he certainly seems like a dignified type of guy, but his alleged responses to the questions he was asked are pretty vapid, and I could see how someone could be irritated by the crowd's response. Not that it should come as a surprise. I mean, Brad Pitt got 15 minutes on Primetime Live the other night to basically say, "Poverty is bad." And they kissed every inch of his rich, white ass for having the bravery to make such a bold statement. <p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END-->People always ask me, "What's cuter: puppies, or kittens?"<!--EZCODE BR START-->
