Tutu True

Rare is the day I concur with Bishop Tutu, but.... He's backing out of a South African peace conference because South Africa is banning the Dalai Lama from entering the country. (Who bans the Dalai Lama from a peace conference?)
We are shamelessly succumbing to Chinese pressure," Archbishop Tutu was quoted as telling the Sunday Independent. "I feel deeply distressed and ashamed."
He's staying home. So's FW deKlerk, so that's 3 of the 4 main conference guests down.

South Africa claims it's not Chinese pressure that made 'em do it, it's that they don't want the World Cup to have to compete for headlines. Yes, dears.
