Spiritual leaders and big guns

On our way to the Emory library (from which I'm writing this), we saw the Dalai Lama's motorcade leaving campus. Brian spotted him in a sleek four door sedan, while I was too busy staring at his security. He was followed by at least two SUVs: one with big security guys in suits facing outward and another in which commando-style guys were sitting in front of each open window (including the rear window) facing outward with some of the biggest automatic weapons I've ever seen in real life. Pretty intimidating.

We've seen the Pope's procession before. Though this one was smaller, it clearly had more firepower.
