Good Thing!

A sure sign that you are a third world country is when high officials have to do very tedious things. For example, following an apparent bombing at the congress that killed a congressman, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of the Philippines had to order the authorities to hunt down the perpetrators, and directed government doctors to help all the victims now being treated in various hospitals.

Good thing they have a president. Otherwise the police would just watch when congress is bombed, and the doctors will just gaze sympathetically at patients.
