Bliss and the Dalai Lama 

Harry Bliss is a cartoonist and illustrator for the New Yorker, Seven Days and children's books, among other publications. Rona Elliot is a famous rock journalist. The Dalai Lama is ... well, you know who he is. How do they fit together?

Harry let me know that Rona saw the cartoon pictured here in the L.A. Times and asked if she could present an autographed, framed copy to the Dalai Lama, whom she just happened to be visiting, even though he is not a rock star.

When she returned, Rona sent Harry a photo of herself and the D.L., clad in his customary maroon robe and adorable smile, and a non-customary baseball cap that reads, "[something I can't make out] PEACE."

Rona also told Harry that when the cartoon was translated for him, the D.L. "cracked up."

Good to know His Holiness has a great sense of humor. So does Harry's wife, Sofi Dillof, who wrote this caption.
