I was walking out of Meadow Glen mall in Meffa - can't remember its name, but it's anchored by a Marshalls and has a Hometown Buffet in it - and the Dalai Lama was walking in with a monk on either side of him. I held the door, and he said, "Thanks". He spoke at the Westin last night, and is speaking at MIT tonight. I don't "follow" him, in the broad sense, but thought this would be a biggie if I did. OK, even if I don't.
[GreginMeffa, if you ever watch this board, what mall is it? I'll add it to this OP.] Never mind.
Oh - and just in case I got the idea that this indicated a special relationship with the cosmos... On the Green Line later, a woman was having a hard time managing all her stuff. There was the usual rabbit start, and her coffee flew. Several of us got "regulared".
