That is funny! Thanks.

I checked it out, and got this. Likely it may not come from Twain.

A demand for a new state for Tibetans will be another "Kashmir" like problem for India.


The difference between Kashmir and Tibet is that whole Tibet is officially part of China now; India, China, and Pakistan each has their own administered part of Kashmir.

India probably has better chance of getting Pakistan back than getting Tibet independent.

So a trip by Dalai Lama should settle the borderline?

How about India's defeat by the Chinese? According to prevailing western logic, Chinese could settle borderline much deeper into Indian territory and call it a day.

Dalai Lama obviously was not any wiser than many people. Otherwise he could see his defeat coming before his "epic journey". Maybe he was, evidenced by his journey or escape.

"Guest of India" for fifty eighty years. Very hospitable of India. China may consider it poking in their eye.

Is Dalai Lama a political refugee?

Are we fighting for the return of Shangri-la somewhere in Tibet? More likely Shangri-la is somewhere in Pennsylvania.

Absence of evidence does not mean evidence of absence. Absence of Evidence is at least partial if not full Evidence of Absence.

Absence of evidence obviously does not mean evidence of presence.

OK. Right. Thanks.

That is a fine-looking lady. Don't understand anything other than that.

Are people in Crimea doing OK?

Accusation without proof, isn't that false accusation?

Should Trump have accused NSA of failing to guard its secret, he could be sounded more reasonable and convincing.

Donald Trump's offices were wiretapped. Everyone is being wiretapped. Likely not by Obama.

Good one. In that sense many people think Trump is a snowflake. Is it because he is a new generation President?

And we are expect more of snowflake tomorrow. Maybe up to a foot.

Still like Defoe's statement about "the middle station of life" very much. Quite bored by his long list of stuff he has got. Turned many pages forward to see the next action scene.
