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

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

Can Tweety the bird be safe with Slyvester the cat?

The pair formed their relationship after five-year-old Maria Fedorov brought the hungry stray kitten home to her parents house in Moscow Russia. Maria's father, Alexander, from, Moscow, Russia, said: 'Despite our fears, they moved everywhere as twins, played, slept and even ate together.'

BH forwarded the above with the following note...

They may be cute now but wait until they grow up:
Chick and kitten are a real-life version of Tweety and Sylvester.

Please note the difference between a chick and a birdie. A chick grows to become a chicken and the size depends on its species. A kampung (or village) chicken is likely to be slim and agile, and can even fly up to perch on a tree. Its size is definitely bigger than a normal bird of Tweety's kind. In the case of castrated chicken, the size can grow to more than 5 kg.! By then, even Sylvester will have to give some respect to it.

By the way, for the information of those uninitiated, a castrated chicken (aka as 'yim kai' in Cantonese) is being sold at Rm50 a kg.! This works out to Rm250 for one bird. You can complain to the government but people are willing to pay for the pleasure of eating a steamed one. As my wife would remind any of her lucky friends, she would not give unless the recipient agrees that no skin will be thrown away!
