: Yes, friend. I've heard that bright, shining lie. I've heard it too many times to count. It makes me sick that we fell for it. I'll never forget the boat people, no matter how flowery your pose might become.
I was listening to NPR last week while getting dressed in the morning and there was a report about how the Cambodian government has tried to get all exiled Cambodian artists back to Cambodia as the Khmer Rouge destroyed a large part of their cultural tradition. Shockingly, they discovered that 90% of all the artists in Cambodia were killed by the Khmer Rouge. There is only a handful of people left who actually have knowledge of the traditional dances of Cambodia. It is a very tragic thing.
