Retraining Old Water

Of interest:

I find this article on buddhists living in an area that has become increasingly commercial to be really fascinating. I have a lot of respect for people living the life of a monk.

The other side of Shari'a, that it represents an order that opposes crime (its definition having partial but not complete overlap with western notions of jurisprudence), is interesting sometimes -- If I were not concerned about the escapability of theocracy, I would have a tougher time deciding between support of theocratic parties versus warlords.

I think I'm going to enjoy this weekend - laundry, cleaning, a good amount of sleep, that movie, etc etc.
