My good blogging mate, Lucia Lai, is a strong civic activist who has, as I have mentioned before, impressed me with her contribution in Penang in the aftermath of the Boxing Day tsunami disaster.
But this time she has been a victim of hopeless bureacracy and government non-action. Yes, she has been a long suffering bus commuter on an Island where once the Green, Blue, Yellow and Beige ran smoothly. For explanation of Penang’s once technicoloured bus services (not the non-service it is today), read Raja Bodek of Manchuko takes bus ride.
I have posted The Cry of Lucia Lai over at BolehTalk, where she expressed her frustration of the current bus non-service and hope the announced RapidKL service may solve her commuting woes.
But she also expressed her indignation that the P-7, no, not Italy’s secret society, but the current bus non-service will be allowed to continue their predatory penurious piracy.
I also highlighted a Ong Boon Keong's succinct explanation why we should not allow Raja Bodek to wash his hands a la Pontious Pilate off the sorry state of Penang Pirates affair.
