Barack Obama's Diary: A Reuben from the Deli Lama

Dear Diary: I dazzled the Dalai Lama at our scheduled meeting this morning. "Lama, I said." Tell me about your deli. Do  you make a good Reuben sandwich?  Myself, I like the usual rye bread, corned beef,  Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, but with Thousand Island dressing rather than mayo."
"Food is a false religion," said  the Lama. "As for me, my religion is simple Kindness." That was a conversation killer,  but his visit made a good photo-op for my many followers in the sandals-and-beads demographic.  But enough about me.
