A planned meeting with Malaysiakini’s Content Editor Lynn D’Cruz took place mid afternoon whereas an unplanned meet with Malay Mail’s Editor at Large Frankie D’Cruz and Errold D’Cruz took place an hour before the close of the day. Earlier I had posted on my Facebook, Frankie’s piece on Poor, Rich Petty Trader. Blogger Penny Chan (Gobloking….who used to blog from Madagascar) sent in a terse, telling comment: Editor will be canned tomorrow. It's incredible to read msm being objective.
That’s why MM is my preferred read and more reason why I am putting Frankie’s piece as my Guest:
Multiple award-winning journalist Frankie D’Cruz is Editor-At-Large of The Malay Mail. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
ON BEING PETTY
The world perishes not from bandits and fires, but from hatred, hostility, and all these petty squabbles.-Anton Chekhov
Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things. - George Carlin
The petty man is eager to make boasts, yet desires that others should believe in him. He enthusiastically engages in deception, yet wants others to have affection for him. He conducts himself like an animal, yet wants others to think well of him. - Xun Zi
