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

I suggest government... because nobody has ever been caught.

yokosuka story

Dream lover

For those who are interested in her history:

"On 16 January 1959, the day that Sade Adu was born in Ibadan in Nigeria, on the other side of the world, in Tokyo, another extraordinary female singer was born.

Momoe Yamaguchi (born 17 January 1959).

We don’t know the times that they were both born, but since Japan is eight hours ahead of Nigeria, perhaps they came into this world at the same time. At the time of writing, 17 January 2009, somewhere in Japan, twenty-nine years after her retirement in October 1980, the woman once known as Momoe Yamaguchi is quietly having her fiftieth birthday.

Momoe Yamaguchi. At the age of thirteen, on 15 October 1972, she appeared in the preliminary rounds of Nippon Television’s audition program “Star Tanjo!” (“A Star is Born!”). At the finals in December of that year, she came second, and was signed up by Hori Productions. In May of next year, at the age of fourteen (her third year at middle school) she made her debut as a singer..."


Just to put in perspective why I am so excited over these videos of Momoe as I searched, found and recognized them... I was just listening to a cassette tape of her songs in the 80s during my 3 1/2 hours road journey each way from KL to BG or on my way back. I did not know how she looked like and now I get to see her perform on video! I hope I can find and recognize more of her songs. Oh, the power of music!

From Momoe's final concert in 2007
