Kx59: The Dalai Lama is resigning. They're getting a new Dalai Lama or something like that.
Me: He can't retire, he's the reincarnation of previous Dalai Lama(s).
Kx59: Well I found it on Drudge and it wasn't another blog link it was a news article.
Me: Let me do a quick Google. No dear, the Dalai Lama is still the Dalai Lama, he's just resigning as Tibet's political leader. He will be the Dalai Lama until he dies.
Kx59: Okay, I didn't say that I had it completely right.
By the way, the Chinese government says that they have to sign off on the next reincarnated Dalai Lama and approve him for the job. I just wonder how they will know whether or not an INFANT will grow up to buck the Chinese government?
I hope that Tibet is independent before the current Dalai Lama passes on.
