Brothers In Arms: First Million to Trillion, Rocky?

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day youll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And youll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

Theres so many different worlds
So many differents suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones
Now the suns gone to hell
And the moons riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But its written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
Were fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

-- Dire Straits, Brother-in-Arms (1985)

Ask any tycoon, they'll say the first million is the sweetest. Surely hitting your first million is a pleasent achievement. Jeff Ooi hit his first mil in 2003. Rocky just did his. Many will start to aspire to touch the sweet million.

I agree with Jeff, you ain't seen nothing yet babe. Commentators have turn to bloggers. What will snowball from thereon? Maybe lets not be surprise that Rocky's first million achieved from May last year could even be 1 trillion hit a month of Malaysians through their blog voicing their concern, fear, and love for this country.

Perhasp, its time all the Kali, Brendan, Hisham Aun, Shaziman, Fu Ah Kiow, and Rehman Rectum of the world should start to live with this new reality. Ku Nan realised it. Bloggers are individuals and they are voicing themselves. Some are responsible and some not quite responsible. Just like in mainstream medialand. Trust the people with sufficient blood flow into their cereblum and cerebrum to distinguish it. And, certainly let em decide.

Congrats Rocky, for this sweet milestone and success ...
On our brothers in arm.
