I was hoping that my next entry would be about how wonderful it is that Malta is joining the EU as a full memeber. Still, I now realize that this blog will be highlighting those issues that are somewhat more controversial than the simple spins given by partisan politics.

It is not my intention to be a pessimist who spreads negative thoughts or energy. I think that something like this is a realistic wake-up call to the proverbial reality: all that glitters is not gold.
