Oh noes!!! I kena censorized agen!!!

MDA contacted Theatreworks and asked for us to remove one line of my Confucian timeline poem/monologue from our "Impetus" performance.

The line cryptically referenced the 1982 death of Wong Ming Yang - Lee Hsien Loong's first wife, who had a fatal heart attack 3 weeks after giving birth to their albino son Lee Yi Peng. (Hey, I printed the official version - I never even mentioned the rumours of what kind of pressure caused the heart attack.)

Mood: grumpy.

Cryptic is so last millennium. Haven't you noticed that we're watching feature-length documentaries at the movies and reality TV on television?

Seriously, stating things figuratively has been done to the death. Today there is more power in being direct.
