|High tech boost
The Deputy Education Minister Hon Choon Kim this month proposed
to lighten the load children had to carry to school every day by replacing
books with RM200 laptop computers that did not have keyboards. As a follow-up
to this brilliant suggestion, the Ministry is also looking at plans to
completely do away with crowded and dangerous school buses and, instead,
have school children directly 'beamed up' to schools from their homes using
transporter technology from Star Trek.
Old-fashioned classrooms will also be replaced with used Holodecks from
the Starship Enterprise and Mr Data androids will be manufactured to replace
human teachers. When asked how the Minister had come across this RM200
keyboardless laptop technology, Ministry officials admitted he probably
confused laptops with Brick Game consoles.

|UMNO Supreme Council hopes Ku Li will keep his
The UMNO Supreme Council this month urged Tengku Razaleigh
Hamzah to keep his promise of not contesting for the top two posts at the
party polls this May. Prime Minister and UMNO President Mahahtir Mohamad
also said he believed that Razaleigh will "stick to his statement'.
Razaleigh had earlier made a statement that he had no plans to contest
either of the top two ruling party posts but raised some speculation when
he started giggling and crossing his fingers as he was issuing the statement.
Some Mahathir loyalists are now seeking a written statement from the Kelantan
Prince signed in blood.
"I promise not to contest ...
cross my hat .."
