don't you just love it - these days leading up to the General Elections?
yesterday, Lulu read via Malaysiakini that four ISA detainees were released after five years of detention.
today, Lulu reads that the Herald, which reports on the Catholic community in English, Bahasa Malaysia, Tamil and Chinese, has had its permit renewed.
The good news was a surprise as
1. It was delivered to them on a Sunday morning, and that's kind of surprising as government offices work 5-day week, don't they
2. There were no conditions attached.
Father Lawrence, the Editor of the Herald thanks Tan Sri Bernard Dompok, the news agencies and other media groups for supporting them with their wide coverage. Lulu echoes the thanks. If it had remained a silent suffering, it would also have died a silent death.
Don't you luv-luv-luv this pre-election season? Who knows, we may be lucky and receive news that a certain son-in-law will be an ambassadorial position to Pakistan. sigh... Lulu's being greedy, isn't she?
btw, sidetrack a bit-ah...
remember how those MIC youth fellas so enthusiastically "defended" the Christians over Makkal Osai's publishing a picture of Jesus holding a beer can on his one hand and cigarettes in his other hand? Wah... those fellas felt so indignant over the picture, they even lodged a police report, a 4 page memorandum to the PM and eventually, succeeded in getting a one month suspension for the paper.
Lulu doesn't recall hearing even a whimper on this from these enthusiastic heroes.
