Snippets – 14 May 2010

Damn!

Some called the shooting of a boy who stole a car, involved in a hit and run and failed to stop when ordered by the police as tragedy. In real sense, this is more tragic:-

A 10-year-old schoolgirl died after she is believed to have accidentally hanged herself at home while re-enacting a movie suicide scene.

At end of the day, it is up to the parents of the young ones to educate the children on what is wrong and what is right and what is real and what is fantasy. They need to keep very close eyes on the young ones so that such tragedy can be avoided. Sometimes it is too late to realise this.

No doubt, working parents may not have the time to watch over their kids all the time. I know since I face the same problem but whenever possible I make sure my son is aware of his environment and to be more careful when we are not around. Negative thoughts are quickly analysed and talked to so that we aware of the source of the negative thoughts – whether it is due to wrong information, wrong perception of things or miscommunication.

But still, young children dying needlessly is tragic.

Wee Resigns

What a 180’ degree turn – just last month MP Wee Choo Keong said this in his blog:-

The truth is I have been ignoring a series of reports in these news portals (and others) where it had made at least 4 false allegations that I was supposed to have resigned from PKR on various occasions.

I have reasons to believe that the false allegations were fed by a few “little napoleons” with the predominant aim to damage my reputation and/or force me out of the party.

When the assurance come that he is not resigning, we were happy that the rumours turn out to be nothing but rumours. We were happy that PR politicians were still keeping things close. But now, Wee Choo Keong had confirmed resigned from PKR and turns to an independent (what a timing he has, just before Sibu by-elections). We now wonder whether the rumours were the true after all.

Apparently Wee is not happy with how things been going in Selangor (even though he is not even representing a constituency in Selangor) and therefore decided to resign. We do expect PR politicians to be different from the BN politicians when it comes to issues but washing dirty linen at the eve of major elections is NOT one of them. What happened to asking questions on how the Government works in the State Assembly or Parliament or working through the systems?

Certainly Anwar have a bigger problem now. With the Sodomy II in play, Anwar needs to consider just how many of the remaining PKR elected politicians are frogs in the waiting. It is an irony that PKR (in form of Anwar) has been the strongest link in Pakatan Rakyat (who else can bring DAP and PAS to agree on the common issues) and yet it (in form of its politicians) had remained the weakest link in destabilising the Pakatan Rakyat’s foothold in Parliament.

Hopefully lessons are learned and weaknesses are resolved before the next election.

Neighbours & Police

This is assuring news after the police put under spotlight recently:-

Seven burglars were caught red-handed by police as they were ransacking a house at Taman Kinrara in Puchong early this morning.

Good for the neighbours who been on the lookout of the suspicious characters in the neighbourhood. It is time for bring back the concept of Rukun Tetangga and foster “good working relationship” among the neighbours – more importantly to improve security in the neighbourhood.
