Well, Hello, Dalai: The Twelfth Son of the Lama Rolls In to Give His SMU Lecture Today
The tail end of the Dalai Lama's motorcade as it rolled past Unfair Park HQ moments ago
New Observer-er Leslie Minora was headed out to an interview moments ago when she got stuck waiting for a mini-motorcade passing in front of Unfair Park HQ on Maple Ave. She asked a Dallas Police officer what was going on. He told her: Why, that's the Dalai Lama! Oh, right. That's today, innit.
Sure is -- and I know of at least a handful of Friends of Unfair Park who managed to snag ducats for his 2:30 appearance on The Hilltop. But to those who can't make it to the SMU campus for the McFarlin Auditorium appearance, keep in mind: The university will stream the lecture live, flowing robes and all. Right here. And remember: When you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.
