While Britain eyes digital future and prepare kids today to be masters of tomorrow we in Malaysia seem to be busy with never ending politics, provocation and lunatics who are given room and space in mainstream discussions and dialogues.
Whether they are deliberate moves or naive steps of a growing number of idiots among us, we as a nation seem to be easily provoked and our mind clouded by otherwise non-issues.
Well, I don't see why touching a dog is so wrong but on the same note I really don't understand why you have to organise a doggy event to touch dogs.
