2. Jeff Ooi gets into Slashdot!

Malaysian Patriot writes “The Malaysian blogosphere is currently in uproar as one of their most famous bloggers, a political observer named Jeff Ooi, has been threatened with action under the country’s draconian ISA (Internal Security Act) law which allows a person to be detained without trial if he is thought to threaten “national security”.

  1. A comedian dies and a star is born. Interesting. I was shocked by the Rodney Dangerfield story (saw it here first!), but only because I thought he had died long ago!

  2. Dangerfield’s next show is scheduled at St. Peter’s Gate. Rest assured that you will feel like heaven.
