Jackass, Jakartass' grandpop, used to tell me that if it ain't worth saying, then say nothing. That's all well and good, but not if you're trying to write a daily blog.
So, here's a bit of this and a bit of that.
The Munir assassination
This is an overview
from Tempo magazine, a publication banned by Suharto, sued and nearly bankrupted by billionaire thugs, yet as fearless as ever.
Questions raised include the involvement of the Dutch government in the ongoing cover-up, the lack of co-operation between the police, the Attorney General's Office and Department of Justice & Human Rights, and why Munir's wife has been denied a copy of the report of Munir's autopsy which she authorised.
The World Socialist Website
suggests that the sequence of events implies behind-the-scenes pressure on Dutch authorities to help put off any police inquiries, if not facilitate a full-scale cover up.
There's a lengthy post due on the effects of the rainy season. The first really negative impact has been the plane crash
in Solo of a domestic flight, which skidded off the runway in heavy rain. This makes the mini-plague of mosquitoes here rather mundane.
A Browse When Bored
offers a miscellany of "humor, satire, music, sarcasm, dreams, romance, rap, lyrics, mp3s, rant ...
" and a section on how Japanese of your parents' generation learnt about the birds and the bees
And that, thanks to the problems with Blogger
, is your lot for yesterday.
