Comedy has never been a genre that moved me unless it was genuine, spontaneous and definitely not if it was soft comedy. When it comes to Black humor nobody can outperform George Carlin in his prime word-smith satire as he debunks the language of politics and euphemism at National Press Club conference held in Washington DC (1999).

Tara is a bodhisattva embodying compassion in the female form of a young goddess. Tara, whose name means "star" or "she who ferries across," is a Bodhisattva of compassion who manifests in female form. In Tibetan, Tara is known as "Dölma" (Sgrol-ma), or "She Who Saves." In particular she represents compassion in action, since she’s in the process of stepping from her lotus throne in order to help sentient beings.
