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

New housing development near radioactive dump site?

(Location map courtesy of The Star)

Road works are being carried out by a housing developer, at a site which is roughly after Papan, on the left side of Ipoh-Lumut Highway, before the 'Existing access road' shown on the map. I think it is too close to the 'Disposal site' as mentioned in the map, for comfort.

Each time I drive past the completed housing project on the right, I wonder why it is still mainly unoccupied. I like the apparent cozy location which is next to a hill, suitable for living away from the busy town centres of Lahat, Pusing or Batu Gajah. Is it because of its proximity to the radioactive dumpsite?

SPNB (Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd) is the developer of the above completed project known as Lahat Indah, which is located away from the 'Disposal site', across the Ipoh-Lumut Highway, on the right, after the 'Existing access road' shown on the map. The project has been issued with CFO, and according to SPNB website, the project has 128 unsold units which range from Rm100,000 (24 Single-storey terrace houses (20'x65'); 45 units from Rm110,000 (20'x70'); 48 units from 120,000 (22'x70'); 4 units from Rm145,000 (Single-storey semi-detached (35'x80'); 6 units from Rm165,000 (40'x80'); and a solitary unit of single-storey bungalow (no land area mentioned) going for R322,816!
