If a bus driver can take on a leadership role in an emergency situation like this, I have to salute Singapore for demonstrating to the world how their people’s reasoning is superior.

Woman arrested for boarding bus in the buff
A MIDDLE-AGED woman has been arrested after boarding a bus naked – the latest in a string of such incidents.
The Chinese woman in her 50s turned up at a bus stop in Ubi wearing a black blouse and pair of black pants, Lianhe Wanbao reported.
She slowly stripped, putting her clothes into a large handbag she was carrying.
Several minutes later, the number 22 bus ferrying more than 20 passengers reportedly arrived at the bus stop next to Block 302 in Ubi Avenue 1.
The woman boarded it and made her way to the back.
The bus driver is said to have promptly stopped the bus, ordered the male passengers to the front and women to the back, where they could help shield the woman.

But on the other hand, more people are going nude in Singapore…

Yikes! What happened along the way to a first world country, Mr Lee Kuan Yew? No wonder Dr. Mahathir so wary of it.
