My boyfriend has mused that if the extremists had to destroy those ancient Buddhas in 2000(? 2001?), then how long before they level the Sphinx? I am alive to the prospect that things could get much better, but my inner pragmatist keeps saying that the spoils always go to the ones most willing to be ruthless. Heaven help us all. Or heaven help us to help ourselves.
