Tibet, Kosovo, and the Olympics - Living up to Our Values
Lost in the news of election coverage, Spitzergate, and Barak’s pastoral issues there has been a major protest in Tibet, led again apparently by some very brave Buddhist monks.

Chinese Communist rulers have not survived all these years, including the days after Tinemman Square in 1989 (one of the saddest of my life - as a college student watching coverage, hoping that the people of China would be free, only to see those young people - my age - trounced by tanks and the army).
So what are we to do, those who say we value human rights?
