"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    Hey, I respect the comedy work of the Dalai Lama.

    Twin Rivers, maybe.

    Then a quick jump to Larry David.

    Hilarious!!  HBO should pick it up.

    Pass it on, why doncha?

    Perhaps you’re thinking that I’m disrespecting the Dalai.

    Not so. I saw the Herzog film. The man is a comedian. You should have heard him in Austria.

    He killed, if you can refuse the expression.

    This guy is a vain comedian.

    And he becomes disengaged in a fundamental way…

    until you make a Providence deal to wake him up.

    Then, you put Providence on the map, and David Simon moves to Broadway, finally gentrifying the area with New Jerseyites.

    Paradise lost.

    Back to work.
