Zam now and then. I've just realisd that I no longer know Zainudin Maidin. I know the Zam of old, when he was an editor of Utusan Malaysia, and when he was in exile in London, where he lived in physical comfort but went through some very difficult and emotional times. The Zam that is going around calling bloggers stupid - and who can't even do it in Bahasa Malaysia and then had to clarify to say that he did not mean all bloggers are goblok, only political bloggers - this Zam I don't think I know. This Zam the Information Minister is a menteri bengap. I can call him bodoh or bangang or bodoh-bangang but bengap has the same number of alphabets as goblok. Those other words would aptly describe Zam the Minister, too, though.
