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
Government fed by the people
I suggest government... because nobody has ever been caught.

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.)

New look for three old flats in Ipoh
... on condition that BN flags must be prominently shown?
IPOH: Three public flats here which were previously notorious for their rundown condition now sport a fresh look after getting a new coat of paint in vibrant colours.
Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said RM4.4 million had been spent under the National Blue Ocean Strategy 7: My Beautiful Neighbourhood project, to rehabilitate the Kinta Heights, Jalan Bijih Timah and Jalan Silang flats, which were built more than 30 years ago.
