WHEN Lord Denning passed away at 100, the Commonwealth world grieved, but shared the joy of his justice legacy: to uphold justice without fear and favour. England lost a pioneering figurehead in judicial activism.
I WOKE up yesterday morning to read that Karpal Singh had died in an accident, bringing an end to a life who had given so much to the nation, not only in the political arena, but also in the courts of law, where he argued and saved many from the gallows.
THE sudden demise of Karpal Singh is a sad day for the nation.
IREFER to Dr Ahmad Ibrahim's article "Rethink cutback in R&D funds for varsities" (NST, April 7). I agree with him about ensuring enough money for varsities to conduct research, as this is a form of long-term investment for all institutions of higher learning. Research and development is what makes these institutions different from schools.
IT'S interesting to read articles pertaining to our lifestyle. We eat too much and for some, non-stop. It's live to eat and not eat to live. Overeating is not good for health. We are what we eat and how we eat.
NO amount of words will ease the sorrow of the family, relatives and friends of Karpal Singh who died yesterday.
UNDERSTANDABLY, given the ongoing search for the missing MH370, the issue of custody of its black box, we are told, is currently under high-level discussions in the United Kingdom, including with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
I REFER to a call by Tenaga Nasional to reduce wastage and save on energy.
I AM concerned about motorists who speed along Jalan Sentosa in Larkin, Johor Baru, and the potential risks they pose to themselves and other innocent parties.
I REFER to "Only residence pass for BOC holders" (NST, April 12). Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has said former Malaysians who are British Overseas Citizenship holders but plan to return home will not have their citizenship reinstated immediately.
