Comparative studies (again)

Kid: Perhaps the people’s representatives would be smarter and perform better if their new building and comparative studies were here (Sidoarjo), in Wasior, in Mentawai or Merapi, yeah Dad!

Seemly unmoved by the thousands of people around the country struggling to cope in the wake of a series of humanitarian disasters, legislators are wasting time and money on plans for a plush new parliament building or overseas junkets to conduct so-called comparative studies.
