    We have to be concerned how this economic crisis will affect our incarcerated brothers and sisters.
    The Dalai Lama says that compassion is the key to a good life.
    I have heard that he is a reasonable fellow.

  2. Chris says:

    While this comment may fail the test of timeliness I must agree with Charlie Donahue.

    This country has a large prison population, the need for compassion must also be large.

    I saw the Dalai Lama at Foxboro stadium some time ago. He did seem a reasonable fellow. He laughed a lot. Do prisoners laugh much?
