The burning of Columbus KTC this morning…

Picture of Columbus KTC members salvaging the Karmapa’s Dream Flag in the aftermath of this morning’s fire, which if it was a church would have been national news, the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss what happened and what it means for us as Karma Kagyu in America…

Jonathan begins.

“First things first, for the folks at home, please show Columbus KTC some love by helping them rebuild their Dharma Center if you can.”

Sally replies.

“The fire was started outside, in back, early this morning.”

Jonathan replies.

“Here are some pictures from Twitter of the salvage efforts this morning.”

 Sally replies.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Columbus KTC.”

Allen replies.

“I can’t believe someone attacked a Dharma Center.”

Sally replies.

“According to Twitter West Columbus has recently had a number of suspicious fires.”

Jonathan replies.

“For all we know Columbus KTC was simply a target of opportunity for the person that torched it.”

Karl replies.

“My first thought was that the fire had something to do with its lama’s politics.”

Virginia replies.

“That’s utterly ridiculous.”

Karl replies.

“My bad.”

Karl continues.

“I naturally go to the dark side here.”

Allen replies.

“My first thought was that if someone torched a church this morning it would have been national news.”

Sally replies.

“That is a bit of a reach if you ask me.”

Allen replies.

“Point taken.”

Allen continues.

“It was just my gut reaction this morning when I heard the news.”

Karl replies.

“Talk about bad karma.”

Virginia replies.

“That’s just you going to the dark side under the guise of taking about the dharma.”

Jonathan replies.

“When talking about something that happens to someone else it is never a good idea to bring up their karma.”

Caroline replies.

“Regardless, Columbus KTC has its work cut out for it.”

Karl replies.

“Good luck with that given OTD’s plans for KTD.”

End scene. Fini.
