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.

And remember: When you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.
