I was about as disgusted and furious as I get when the Taliban mortared the 1500-year old monuments in March 2001. Of course, this shows that I'm not really a Buddhist, but a Buddhist sympathizer. A true Buddhist wouldn't really be all that hurt by the Taliban's actions. I just can't detach myself from the concepts of permanence and desire.

Sorry, your holiness, but fuck that. Rebuild the Bamiyan Buddhas, but save one boulder to drop on Mullah Mohammed Omar's fucking head.
