I was rather frustrated over the weekend – I couldn’t log into my wordpress account ! Sorry, that took away two millions years of my blogging life 😦
But I am grateful to my faithful readers who continued to check me out despite my absence and gave my last post a whopping 200++ comments. Miss me, didn’t ya? And I missed you all.
Over the weekend, I found some annoying titbits that I wanted to blog about, but couldn’t until now. It’s all a bit too late and stale news already, but never mind, just for the record…
I could punch the paper myself when I saw the photo of the famous Lingam video-man and MP Loh Gwo Burne’s story about being punched by fellow MP Nik Nazmi’s aide splashed all over the front page of the People’s Paper, The STAR.
The People’s Paper suddenly came across to me like the Politician’s Paper, and not the People’s. Why? Because there were at least two other REAL people’s stories, but they were abandoned to the insides and back pages.
One was the story of a “Cop charged with raping girl” (On the Nation, Page 16), and the other was a story on “Horror attack in classroom”, where a teacher and a student were hit with a hammer and spanner (on the Nation, Page 23).
Aren’t these two more relevant as people’s stories than the one on the politician?
Then there was the story of the space tourist who got a datukship. The grouses that goes on in coffee shops of course include the question why should that travellor who went to space on the RAKYAT’s money should get a datukship????
I’ve also noticed that Anwar Ibrahim gets prime time coverage over TV and also lots of space in the newspapers. Are the newspapers preparing themselves to welcome the new Prime Minister come September 16?
The question is “will the plan on Malaysia day succeed?”
