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 appears 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.)

A bit on Jon Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen



This was the first song  in a VCD compilation of Pavarotti & Friends in concert for Liberia 98 which got me hooked on songs which combined classical and pop vocals. It was also the first time I got to know Jon Bon Jovi the pop star. Never mind the fact that 'everybody in US knows Jon' said Bill Clinton in an interview. He complimented Jon as 'having great personality, great music and great stage presence' or something to that effect. When asked whose job was better (President of US or Pop singer), Jon said his was better because 'I get to keep the house and the plane'!

Well, again I chanced upon this tv program on CNBC (I forgot about the channel for months!) and saw this handsome man who looks like Jon Bon Jovi. It was about Soul Kitchen, and I had to watch more before confirming that it was him. According to his website, http://www.jonbonjovisoulfoundation.org/ , JBJ Soul Kitchen is 'a community restaurant without prices on the menu' and...


THE COMMUNITY KITCHEN SERVES UP NUTRITIOUS MEALS FOR ALL; ACCEPTS BOTH CASH & VOLUNTEER HOURS AS PAYMENT
(October 19, 2011 – Red Bank, NJ) 
Jon Bon Jovi today announced the opening of the JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, NJ to a crowd that overflowed the gardens and parking lot at the “community kitchen,” which redefines how the issue of hunger can be addressed. With no prices on the menu, the Soul Kitchen serves meals to customers who have earned them through volunteer hours. The Soul Kitchen operates as a program of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation and is sustained by cash payment from customers who are able to pay the suggested donation (or even a little more).
According to Wikipedia, Jon Bon Jovi is already 50 this year! He is ever so youthful...
