Well, Hello Dalai

Obviously hoping that some of his "saintliness" will rub off on it, the Toronto Star enlisted the Dalai Lama--yes, you heard right, the Dalai Lama--to "guest edit" the front page of today's paper:
“There are two kinds of Nirvana,” the Dalai Lama said, flanked on one side by the Star’s publisher, John Cruickshank, and on the other by its editor-in-chief, Michael Cooke.
“One Nirvana (is) for humanity. Another Nirvana is for the individual. My Nirvana is (the) whole world becoming more peaceful, more compassionate, with less problems — that’s world Nirvana.”...
That's world bollocks, more like: the reason the self-righteous Star and the holy--let's face it--fool are so simpatico.
