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

Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah is in town...

presumably.

This afternoon, on our way back from Ipoh to a Pusing Esso service station to fill up, I spotted a helicopter on the grass lawn outside his brother's house. Not sure when the land was purchased, whether it was meant to be an occasional helipad, but years ago, the locals assumed it was meant to prevent another house being built. But it must have been so convenient for Tan Sri to literally drop by to pay his eldest brother a visit. There were a few curious kids around the copter, after all, it wasn't everyday they or us got to see one up close. I can still remember a few years ago, when Tan Sri first came in his copter for a function at a local school's multi-purpose hall named after his father, Dato Cheah Fah, many local residents struck 4-D lottery based on its number!

Anyway, at the service station, my wife asked the boss if he knew whether the copter was Tan Sri's and his reply said it all about the question being obvious: 'Who else has a helicopter to fly home with?' Another presumption was that he was back for Cheng Beng, an annual Chinese ritual of visiting the graves of their ancestors.
