How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain
Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Stesen KTM Batu Gajah needs to regulate road traffic

Surprised? It was a Sunday afternoon, at 3 pm when I arrived BG station by train from KL Sentral. The car park was full and the roads in front of the station were filled with cars parked haphazardly and motorists driving through from both sides had difficulty passing through. That travel by rail is getting popular was evident and the normally quiet station was slightly chaotic because of motorists not following rules. It is alright when there are less people and human tends to slack when given the freedom.

That there were so many cars was because presently there is no public transport like bus service. Taxis need to be pre-arranged unless they try their luck if they know the arrival times, especially on a Sunday. So because of the 2 km away from the main road which is not walkable (unless desperate) especially in the afternoon, passengers need to arrange with someone to pick them upon arrival. I can safely say that about a third of the number of passengers, like myself, could have walked, if only the train stopped at the old station.

KTMB management in BG should have an employee in charge of ensuring road traffic signs are observed and parking spaces are made use of. At the moment, because the station is normally quiet except during departure and arrival, and especially during weekdays, motorists park in front of the station for convenience. But to avoid congestion during a peak Sunday, the road in front should be changed to 'Jalan Sehala' or 'One way street' and if necessary, have some parking lots created. This would prevent confusion as well as creating some convenient parking for those too lazy to walk!
