Rest In Peace Mr Lee... may History judge you fairly and you once again be united with your dearest wife in the afterlife...
Two things have altered not
Since first the World began
The beauty of the wild green earth
And the bravery of Man

i find watching the endless tv programs about him on channel 5 quite educational, particularly his works overseas discussing this and that (e.g. cambodia over vietnam invasion, forming the ASEAN, his pioneering works with russia, europe, etc)

agreed. And I believe a lot of younger people are learning more about PAP and its beginning in the last few days than ever before. Hopefully teaches them to be more resilient and treasure what comforts we have today.
