Waiter--one Singapore Fling! Er, Sling.
Amanda Butler is concerned by Singapore's actions in reactions to a falling birthrate--she's worried that Bush and his buddies are going to emulate the Singaporean government and give us novel dating tips such as "First Impressions Count!" and "Paying your date a compliment is a powerful tool!"

Me, I'm laughing at the hyperenthusiastic yenta act--and I'm pleased that Singapore is finally letting "Sex and the City" into the country as an attempt to get people in the mood. Hey, whatever increases freedom of expression. Besides, Singapore's always seemed like the kind of country that could stand to knock back a couple Singapore Slings and let its hair down.
