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 appear 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

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

What is and what should never be...

what an apt title of a Led Zeppelin song which Haley Reinhart sang during the last three semi-final of the 10th Season of American Idol. She created a first by including her guitarist father in the show!

Scotty McCreery (you can't have a more Scottish name than that) eventually won the title, with his strength in country style which he made full use of. Truth be told, his face reminds me of the cartoon figure in Mad magazines! A handsome version.

Lauren, also of the last 3 semi-finalists, was shown during a rehearsal, egging Steven Styler to join her in his 'Don't wanna miss a thing'. The nice thing about American Idol is the flexibility in allowing creativity in expression. The judges were really good in selecting from raw talents but with potential, and polishing them along the way to be super stars. Towards the final selection, it would have been difficult to decide on the final winner, and what better or fairer way than to leave it to the millions of Americans?
