Yes! My rant got published in The Star

This morning as I was about done with my royal business on the ceramic throne I flipped thru the last remaining pages of my required reading. Surprise! I saw the rant I wrote in the Star Citizen's Blog got published. It was 2 days since I wrote the article and I thought I would have been passed over but I guess they had a slow news day :)

I guess this particular news is of no importance to anyone other than myself but if you somehow have the urge to take a look then open up 18th January 2006's The Star and turn to page N33.

I didn't win RM50. It went to the first article. The one on top of mine titled "People no longer care like they used to".

Yes I do shamelessly admit that I was aiming for the 50 bucks. But then I'm thrilled enough as it is to actually get publised :p No big deal if you're not me though.

And here is my world famous article.

They really trimmed down my entry but I like what they did with it. The editor has my respect. Only one complain though but first let me reproduce the published article. You can compare it with original article here.

Many shopping complexes have made a concious effort to make their buildings disabled-friendly.

However, their efforts will be in vain if we choose to abuse such facilities.

Many of us regard indiscriminate parking as a way of life, but do we have to stoop so low as to take advantage of a disabled person's facility?

I took this picture with the intention of getting it published, but on hindsight I really should have told the driver to move his car.

Ok... now the complaint. Why the hell did the editor change the driver change from a lady to a guy? The lady in the picture is the actual driver of that Merc. Typo perhaps?
