Fischer, the Dalai Lama and PR

DalaiLama So Fischer is off on a ten day excursion to India to visit the Dalai Lama. Wonder what His Holiness would think of Fischer’s hosting Thunder’s manifestation of massive military might?… Louisville’s murder rate?… Metro’s tearing down homeless camps before establishing an officially sanctioned camp area for the homeless?… Louisville’s race based poverty, substandard housing and below average education?… the hosting of a gun and knife show at the convention center?  And what of Fischer’s statement: “Our focus on compassion is something that resonates worldwide and is so relevant in today’s world. And I always welcome the chance to tell our city’s story to potential investors and business interests.”  Compassion and investment, all in one breath.
Louisville would be better served for the next ten days by his picking up litter off west end streets rather than his chasing a big carbon footprint photo-op.
