Insensitivity of Some Writers

While snooping on what's been hot news among my Fb friends, I stumbled across a shared blogpost in response to an article published a few days ago on The Star news website on "No benefit in being fat" (written by Tee Lin Say). With limited time and internet access during lunch hour, I Googled up the offending article and found it. Unfortunately I wasn't able to read past the first two paragraphs when I was called away.

About an hour ago, I tried to access the said article again and found that it had been replaced with a public apology by the writer! Shoot (I thought) I had missed it! In the space of a few hours, the article had been taken down. A screenshot of the current webpage is as below. More of the story after the jump.

Suddenly Death

It is pretty curious. Over the past few weeks, the topic of death has suddenly kept reappearing in different forms.

Possessing a Company Secretary's Licence is a Strong Ass

Can't help the Grammar Nazi emerging. Was browsing through some job advertisement when I found this ad by a large local O&G company.
This is why we need proofreading
Lol! I guess in 3-4 years' time I will have a "strong ass"? Looking forward to that moment! *wink*
