MY WIFE AND I WERE JUST ABOUT THE FIRST (AND LAST!) VISITORS TO EXPLORE TIBET INDEPENDENTLY IN 1988. WE FLEW IN ON A MILITARY PLANE WITH ARMED CHINESE TROOPS. THE NEXT YEAR TIANANMEN SQUARE ERUPTED... AND TIBET'S WELCOME MAT WAS QUICKLY WITHDRAWN. TODAY, YOU CAN BUY A GOVERNMENT TOUR PACKAGE...
 
TIBET / CHINA... RELIGION IS A PERSONAL MATTER. YOU HAVE YOUR FAITH... PLEASE ALLOW OTHERS TO EMBRACE THEIR BELIEFS. THEN WE CAN ALL LIVE IN PEACE... THANK YOU.

">>>CLICK HERE<<<" (ABOVE) TO READ FULL LETTER


 IF YOU'RE TRAVELLING AROUND THE USA, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE HUNDREDS - OR THOUSANDS - OF AFFLUENT AMERICANS ENJOYING THEIR RETIREMENTS IN MASSIVE MOTOR HOMES... THIS PINK HOODIE ON THE FRONT PAGE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES RECENTLY (OK BOOMER... HAVE A TERRIBLE DAY) IS A SHOT OVER THE BOW. YOUNGER GENERATIONS ARE FED UP WITH THEIR ELDERS EXTRAVAGANT LIVING... WHILE THEY STRUGGLE TO MAKE ENDS MEET... H-M-M-M. I HAVE SOME THOUGHTS ON THIS.

OK BOOMERIS THEIR AFFLUENCE A TERMINAL DISEASE... OR CAN IT BE, PEACEABLY, CURED?
