Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has finally started his own blog -- H E R E (http://www.chedet.com)
Welcome to blogosphere, Sir!
Good for you, Tun. We're glad that you have finally started your own blog.
Rocky and I were probably among the first few who asked him to blog. In fact, we could well have been the first to plant the idea in his head.
At a luncheon gathering at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, held in his honour in 2006, Dr Mahathir was articulating several issues and lamented that "people should know about these things". Seated near him were two former group editors of mainstream media and several former and serving civil servants, and corporate leaders.
Dr Mahathir had asked how could he get these issues across to people.
I remember saying, from across the table: "Blog, Tun. You should blog about about these issues."
He grinned and feigned surprise: "Blog? "
"Yes, you should," chipped in Rocky.
Dr Mahathir said he didn't think he would have the time to blog.
I don't know whether he ever thought about blogging after that. Probably not.
But well, Tun. Looks like you must have thought about it lately, and have found the time to blog now.
Dr Mahathir's first posting is "The Appointment Of Judges". And at my last count, he had 382 comments.
Keep them coming, Tun!
