Money put to better use

The government in Indonesia is none too keen on having local governments subsidise football teams and with good reason. Why should the taxpayers fork out for a football team when schools are in poor conditions and roads are damaged and health care is inadequate?

That was the first paragraph of Antoni Sutton's latest posting - Football Funding - on his blog Jakarta Casual. Read his views here.

So do you think that our state government's funding towards sports, especially football, should be reduced? This will force teams to scout for sponsors and handle their monetary affairs professionally...no?

HD says: There are schools in East Malaysia that still run on generators that have to be charged manually every four to six hours. A little closer to KL, there are potholes everywhere...from Jalan Ampang to the Federal Highway.
