Dalai Lama live at Raso's Grille, Medford Massachusetts


Story by Nell Escobar-Jokely

Dan Hurley:  Your Holiness, Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yesh Tenzin Gyatso, gee it's so good to see you...

Dalai Lama: My religious name is Tenzin Gyatso, but you can call me Dalai, Dan!

Dan Hurley: Dalai Dan, that's funny, my name is Dan too!  Are you any relation to the Black Dahlia? We have a Medford Historical Society monument for her on Salem Street

Dalai Lama: No relation.  

Dan Hurley: Can I offer you a drink?

The Dalai Lama stares down Dan Hurley

Dan Hurley: OK, bad idea.

Dalai Lama: Why are there pair of eyes peering at me from window?

Dan Hurley: Wow, you must be psychic.  Do you have second sight in the back of your head or something?

Dalai Lama: No, I see her peering through glass here at Raso's by looking in yonder mirror.

Dan Hurley: Oh, that's Madame X she's busy stalking one of the police officers.  She always does that. She's like a decoration here.

Dalai Lama: Looks like she's auditioning for the sequel to Fatal Attraction.  What does Director Adrian Lyne live in Medford or something?

Dan Hurley:  We wish.  No, she's just your garden variety unhinged psycho witch from hell.  Keeps things colorful in the city.

Dalai:  I bet!  Which one of the police officers is she sexually attracted to?

Dan Hurley: The politically connected one over there...

Dalai Lama: Such low standards for American women!

Dan Hurley: Yeah, my boss had the hots for her too, but now he's dating the cop's niece.

Dalai Lama: Strange, Double Dipping Donato is dating daughter of cop's brother?

Dan Hurley: Or sister, I dunno,  you'll find Medford is very incestuous.

Dalai Lama: Indeed!  I'm 77, how old is your boss?

Dan Hurley:  Just about your age!


Dan Hurley: Hey, absolute power corrupts absolutely, but bless his dishonest little heart,

Dan Hurley:  You know, Dalai, that's not a bad idea...The Boston Globe quotes a D.A. ... “This is one of the largest criminal [problems] in the history of the Commonwealth,” said Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey.

Dalai Lama: a larger criminal problem than the regime of  Frankie Foolishness?

Dan Hurley: Careful, what if Frank Took the Money!

Dalai Lama: I'm here to enlighten

Dan Hurley: We've already got the editor of Medford Information Central to enlighten...Martha Coakley's scared and 

Dalai Lama: State Rep Donato is fuming!  Well, it's Donato's own damn fault for stabbing that cordial tv host in the back!

to be up: The Dalai meets Double Dipper Donato!
