My Prime Minister Is A “Fellow Left-Hander”, Not The Leader Of Malawi In Disguise

This week is the week that the Prime Minister of my country visited the country I am in.  Exciting times.  Got a few stories to share.

In this story, PM Lee Hsien Loong credited a train attendant for being normal (thanks Jon for the lead).

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, with his wife Ho Ching, sharing a light moment with train lead service attendant John Laliberte, 57, on being a fellow left-hander after Mr Laliberte took his meal order. They were travelling on the regular Acela Express from Washington, DC to New York City on Wednesday. -- ST PHOTO: WANG HUI FEN

This after meeting President Obama the most powerful lefty in the world. Here they are seen trying to cope with the demands of a right-handed world.

And finally, the Pentagon loaded of a video of the Malawi Leader received by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and titled the video as PM Lee’s visit (this is a useless link showing that the Pentagon has already removed the vid, let me know if you clicked it, and I will have a good laugh at you, then refer you to this link which beat our friends at The Pentagon Channel to it).  This caused a huge furore amongst 40% of the population in my home, with another 40% unaware and apathetic, and the remaining 20% illiterate.

I’m not an Englishman in New York, but I think I know how Sting felt.

Finally, I Get Published By Somebody Who Is Not Me

My op-ed entitled The Science of Iran’s Nuclear Behavior.  Many thanks to The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs, especially Jess Kuhn for making this happen.
