يحبونني ميتا .. كي يقولوا

“He was a colleague of mine, a friend and a brother”.

Worldly statesmen, and long lasting at that, are entitled to a world of privileges of course including the right to out of this world statements.

You may opt to be sociological regarding the regal reactions to the death of the Sheikh of the People, or downright an anthropological observer. Or just limit yourself tothe rhetorical tools of the trade. But being unlearned in any of the above, I usually call a learned friend. The latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV). This was taken verbatim, so it may or may not be clinically correlative:

Clinical Syndrome

Dissociative Fugue


Dissociative Disorders


This disorder is very rare and an acute stressor is often the precursor to onset.


The primary feature of this disorder is abrupt travel away from home, an inability to remember important aspects of one’s life, and the partial or complete adoption of a new identity.


The disorder typically dissipates on its own and it is extremely rare to last more than one month.


Prognosis is very good.

In the same week, after the Financial Audit Bureau report was issued he had the nerve to urge the people to "save public money"! hah

In the same audited year, a newspaper approached the PMO for help. And help was ordered and received, in the form of half a million BD, out of the coffers of GOSI and the Pension Fund. But that's sovereign as opposed to audited prerogative.
