I had some level of consciousness going for me- even back then.
Sometime, in my previous Chief life, one of our nation's owners flew the Dalai Llama to Moonbat Valley. After attempting to ply the Dalai Llama with various types of booze at elite cocktail parties, the elite of Moonbat Valley allowed him to speak to us little people.
The Sheriff of Moonbat Valley took extraordinary security measures because ya know, the Dalai Llama with his message of universal love and consciousness- makes him a highly sought after target of many with nothing but assassination on their minds.
You ever look back on your life and say, "Did I dream that?" and then on further reflection, say "no, that foolishness actually happened." Now that I think about it, I am surprised that they didn't have a wine auction. http://www.boiseweekly.com/boise/made-in-china/Content?oid=923889
