    Just a friendly jab at all the people who think Buddhism never kills people.

    Right wing cult?

    They were crazy left wing nuts.
    We have a lot of them in Bowie, Cascabel and Bisbee.

    They should do something like that in the coolness of the Mountains like the Buddhists do .
    Not in the flat dry desert heat where it's gets up to 110 degrees.

    The semantics were deliberate, but I am not blaming the retreat for the deaths, just using the power of words to challenge people to think.
