When It Rains It Pours

Just 2 items for the morning, but enough to wake up those sleepy brain cells!

1. I can but just imagine the extent of the misery the recent torrential storms would have caused in Johor and other states. But read this and this for the latest. They are appealing for volunteers, cash and kind.

2. The 9th MP and US$50 billion Question

Read this for up in your face allegations.

I reiterate my belief that Malaysia will never really be hit by natural disasters, maybe the occasional hiccups unlike our immediate neighbours. Our problems are and will continue to be entirely man-made, with the goons down at putra jaya , manning the wheels.

Yesterday (15/1) was Martin Luther King Day in the U.S. A quotation from him:

"Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don�t have to have a college degree to serve. You don�t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don�t have to know Einstein�s theory of relativity to serve. You don�t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."

Time for action. Do something. Anything. Just do it!
