Censoring a Congratulatory Note

BLACKOUT505  STILL IN FORCE HERE.

Which country in the world censors the congratulatory greetings of  friendly governments ? That’s precisely what the government controlled mainstream daily THE STAR did to a congratulatory note by President Obama (USA) to Najib Razak who assumed the Premiership shortly after the GE13 despite the dubious election result.

Psy, the world-famous K-Pop star performed in Penang today (11th February 2013). He was called, in a last desperate attempt by the ruling Barisan Nasional (National Front) to re-take Penang state, which was wrested from them by the Opposition Pakatan Rakyat (Peoples’ Coalition) at the last general elections on 8th March 2008.

After my last post about the changing images of youth, I apologize for entertaining rather middle-aged thoughts about them, but am quite happy that they, in their exuberance, proved me completely wrong.
