A questioner asked the Buddha: "Life seems a tangle-- An inner tangle and an outer tangle. This generation is hopelessly tangled up. And so I ask the Buddha this question: Who will succeed in disentangling this tangle?"

The Buddha replied: "When a wise one, thoughtful and good, Develops a greater consciousness, He will understand the tangle. As a truth follower, ardent and wise, He will succeed in disentangling the tangle."

--Samyutta Nikaya

Tales of a "spectacular attack" certainly put a damper on the weekend, but once again we're left with the question, "What are you supposed to do?"

And here's a piece from the Boston Phoenix that combines my least favorite topic (war) with my most favorite (primates).
