Yes!! We are number one again in the world! On December 26, WHO confirmed the death of a 24 years old in Indonesia caused by the bird flu. She is number 94 in Indonesia, out of 210 humans death caused by the virus since 2003.
Indonesia accounted for almost half of the fatalities.

I don't really see the government is really into this matter. Yes, every now and then, you can see on TV public announcement about this. How we should proceed if we find suddenly died bird or chicken, bla bla bla. But there hasn't been any harsh punishment on people who still keep and sell the sick bird, live or death.

Again, why should government think about this issue? 2009 (the next election date) is a year away, and that's more important!

Maybe the most expensive web site in Indonesia

Indonesia may have a lot of people in poverty, but that doesn't stop our beloved clueless and brainless government to throw away money.

This Minister of Culture and Tourism's website cost 17.5 Billion Rupiah (equivalent to approximately 1.9 Million USD @ 9300 rate). (Kompas, Monday Dec 17th, 2007)

Do you think it worthed? Personally I would rather spend all those Rupiah to renovate Elementary School (SD) across Indonesia.

Richest man in Indonesia, is also the man responsible for the biggest environment dissaster in Indonesia in the last 3 years

Aburizal Bakrie, according to Forbes, is the richest man in Indonesia. link

But his family own company, Lapindo Brantas, caused an environment disaster back in 2006, causing thousand of peoples homeless, jobless, loosing their precious belongings, and depressed. And the company trying not to compensate the lost.

Aburizal Bakrie, since you're filthy rich, you should be ashame of yourself as some of your wealth are based on other peoples' (we are talking thousands) misery.

Shame.. shame....

And Aburizal Bakrie is Coordinating Minister for People Welfare... What an irony.
