Journalism in Singapore

David Copperfield may not be doing the Asian leg of his world tour due to “unforeseen circumstances”, or, more specifically, a sexual assault charge. Singapore’s tabloid newspaper The New Paper published a story on this (not sure how long this story will be up on this site).

But here’s the part of the story that really caught my eye:

Another upset fan was undergraduate Luke He, 25, who had bought a pair of $128 tickets to the show and planned to propose to his girlfriend of four years after the event.

I don’t know who the bigger idiot was: the journalist or the undergraduate.
