We had not stopped laughing after President Zardari's 'disclosure' that "Gilani is a strong PM" when another hilarity struck us smack in the face; Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Jehangir Badar, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Babar Awan, Qaim Ali Shah, Naveed Qamar, Rana Aftab Ahmad are some of 'the thinkers' included in a PPP think-tank to solve our problems. That would be a tank full of yes men. Is any one of them capable of expressing one independent thought on any subject in the presence of the party head honcho, Mr. Zardari? -KHURSHID ANWER, Lahore, via e-mail, August 28.
