Humble byline.

Wait, who is Tenzin Gyatso, the author of this weekend's religion-and-science op-ed in the New York Times? (Last week, you recall, was cosmology day on the op-ed page.) Oh, yes: He's the 14th Dalai Lama!

How refreshing to see this simple acknowledgment that a person — even a person recognized by a religious community as its own divine leader — is still, in the public sphere, an individual human being with a personal name.
