In a sensitively titled piece "Bite Me, Boulder Buddhists!" now appearing at elephant journal, popular iconoclast Bill Schwartz (@ryderjaphy) offers his must-read take on Tibetan Buddhism, Twitter, and the "sangha" that loves to hate (big hint: they are not in Colorado).
Schwartz obviously has an old Chicago joke in mind....
"Say there," says the drunk to the cop, "Is it against the law to call a policeman a jackass?"
"It certainly could be," replies the cop.
"Well, then, " says the drunk, "Is it against the law to call a jackass a policeman?"
"No, I'd have to say it isn't," the cop answers.
"Thank you then, Mr. Policeman."
UPDATED: The intrepid Bill Schwartz thanks the policeman in his latest "Welcome to Twitter Hell," and excites dialogue about on-line bullying that is definitely a must-read.
