"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"Sometimes when you look in his eyes you get the feeling that someone else is driving. " - David Letterman


"The word inflation appears to be the most commonly used economic term among the general public. Table I column 1 shows how often the word has been used, in comparison with other economic terms, based on a computer search of news stories in the ALLNWS (all news) section of the Nexis system, an electronic search system for English language news publications (and including some broadcasts) around the world. The word "inflation" appeared in 872,004 stories, far outnumbering the stories containing any other economic term. Only unemployment comes even close, with 602,885 stories. The term inflation even outranks the word "sex", for which Nexis ALLNWS produced only 662,920 stories."
