Back to Front?

Malaysia has to publish 27,000 book titles for general reading annually to become a knowledgeable, developed nation and be on par with other developed countries ...
See how this little piece in The Star the other day made our Daphne splutter.

That made me splutter too. It's such a Malaysian solution.

Confusing quantity for quality again, people do that a lot.

The reason there are 40,000 lecturers and professors is that your average prof makes 15-30K a month.

The reason there are no writers is that you sell, on the average, 2 books a month (if you're lucky.)
