Why not start a weblog?

Lee Kuan Yew,Why not start a weblog?
He has a lot of wisdom; best way to pass it to youths is in the blogophere. By Seah Chiang Nee
Jun 6, 2005

I'm like to suggest that the Minister Mentor start his own personal website, although admittedly the prospect of it is rather slim. No harm in trying because I think it's a good idea.

Reason? At 81, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew still possesses one of the sharpest minds around and his knowledge about issues involving Singapore and the world, new and old, would be a tremendous boon to youths everywhere.

The weblog could be small and simple, to reflect his personal views and thoughts.


Just one thing I would like to mention about this article. Doesn't the Minister Mentor already have an online 'site', The Straits Jacket.

To the anon who said that, you are overwhelmingly anoying in this age of technology when people can say what they like without having to go through 3 levels of bureaucracy to get it approved.

Thumbs up your ass.

Not far from the madding crowd,
I yearn for an island of reality;
Here there are no piped news,
Or strait-jacketed views;
For incongruity is tolerated,
And truth comes undecimated;
Should freedom of expression be
at its unbridled best?
Amid fear the good life not
come without a pap-smear test;
Where the worth of youngish
permanent residency,
Does not far outweigh its ageing
citizentry ....


In case you're wondering, thrasy, if you're reading this, I'm not singing praises about Hougang
Green, even though they do farm out an obscenely inordinate and wanton amount of overseas study
leave ...

I think anon is overly cautious. Or afraid of speaking the great rulers name.

'... Well we do remember that in 1997, an mrt station here which was very frequented by US nationals was targeted but soon the attack was called off by Osama himself ...'

Anon, the cameras were incapable of recording at that time. People were jumping onto the tracks at nearby Bukit Batok like it was the latest craze and it wasn't just Alice Silverstone that was clueless ...

Why don't you say something I can understand (my IQ above 100 but below 136) like 'welcome to the darkside' or 'may the farce be with you ...'

Geez, [panick] my shrinks are all on overseas study leave ...

Wow, that is easily one of the most retarded sites I've ever seen. :)
Must be a spoof or something..

Retard? I think you're putting it a little too nicely.

This one must either be wearing a strait-jacket or selling them!

Pity my shrinks are all on overseas study leave ...
