Should American students cooperate with Chinese students by believing the same things the Chinese students do about the Lama?

Just because China says that doesn't mean there might be a grain of truth in behind that statement, Wilson. Americans might not have to cooperate and believe the same things as the Chinese do, but they still have to consider that there might be something about the Dalai Lama. One side says he's great, the other side says he's evil, then you don't believe either side. He's neither great nor evil until we can actually see into his head.

My schools online journalism program, The Paly Voice, did a story on the Olympics. It is a two part opinion piece. Come see it at the links below.
