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

Escalation of escalator accidents is worrisome

The most unusual and tragic accident involving an escalator: a young mum was holding her kid while on an escalator, fell to her death, through an opening caused by an unsecured platform. Her mother instinct made her threw her kid away from the hole and he was saved by someone nearby.

Yahoo: Chinese Shoppers Pictured Avoiding Escalators After Mum Killed In Accident

'After a mother was killed in a tragic escalator incident in China last week, residents will naturally be cautious.
Xiang Liujuan was seen in video footage heroically throwing her two-year-old son to safety as the escalator floor fell from beneath her, pulling her to her death.
The accident has seen an outpouring of grief for the young mum - but some people in China have taken to mocking the safety record of escalators in the country by filming themselves in all sorts of weird positions getting on and off.'


Since then there were a few reports of minor accidents involving escalators in Malaysia, like the boy who had a shoe and sock caught in it. But when going up and the escalator suddenly go in reverse, it can be scary...

'A recent viral video is a tumble down memory lane for those who rode a malfunctioning escalator at a mall in Malaysia last year.

Surveillance footage posted online over the weekend of the bizarre shopping trip shows an escalator full of mall patrons suddenly go in reverse. It caused dozens of people headed upwards to topple back like dominoes and land in a major pile.

The incident looks very serious, especially since some of the shoppers were young children and senior citizens.'
