Ninety eight percent of the adults in this country 
are decent, hardworking, honest Americans.
 It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. 
But then, we elected them.

This afternoon we went to see a movie from Bhutan, Hema Hema, Sing Me a Song While I Wait.
Before the movie, Chao and I had a long philosophical discussion on the possibility, ramifications, and morphological connotations of watching a movie without eating popcorn, but fortunately, were able to reach a decision, so we got a big bag of popcorn, plus a cup of hot chocolate.
The movie is powerful, and different from big studio, big budget films. The story line is not too complex, but there are a lot of details, and it is beautiful to watch. If you have a chance, this movie is worth watching, and maybe more than once. 
After all, how often do you get to watch a movie in Dzongkha?
