Sensitive Journalism Update
On Sunday, 15 February, a leading national TV station(1) reported a disastrous event. Calamities continuously befell an elderly woman. Her husband recently passed away. And during her husband's death memorial, flood struck her house.
"What's wrong with that?" You probably ask.
Well, the reporter didn't actually say "memorial" (or in Bahasa: "peringatan"). He said, and I quote, "syukuran" (literally: "celebration").
1: Of which the name's top secret, and will be known only by the code Falcon One.

IS NOTHING SACRED ANYMORE?
Barbie Breaks up with Ken on Valentine's Days.
But Mr. Arons assured fans that she will remain "good friends" with Ken.I can imagine the breakup scene;
Barbie: "I'm sorry Ken, but I just can't date a man who can't even get out of his own boxer shorts."
Ken: "Oh, yeah? Well, I don't want to be with a doll who's been posing naked on kitchen appliances, either!"
AN ACTUAL COMPETITOR'S PRESENTATION SLIDE

ATTENTION WOMEN: YOU NOW HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE NAKED
I noticed that many visitors came by trying to find out the article about the New York's law that give women the rights to be topless while riding the subway. Well, you can't find it here, now. The article was a daily This Is True feature from Randy Cassingham that I installed at the bottom of this page. But if you're still curious, try here. The article also summarized a similar decision in Canada that has wider impact. Women in Ontario reported "have taken this opportunity to sunbathe topless in their local parks."
Regulars might notice that the This Is True feature used to be on the left navigation menus. Well, it was too wide and slow. So I moved it to the bottom. Now it looks better, and doesn't affect the loading process that much.
SIGNS OF WISDOM #1
The abovementioned Canadian ruling was also beneficial to strip clubs, which placed topless women on the sidewalk with banners declaring "Choose your topping."
