Man’s Inhumanity to Man (Maguindanao Massacre)


 Manila, Philippines,  Dec. 7, 2009 –       A skillful handling of the Maguindanao massacre by the present administration under President Gloria M. Arroyo (GMA) could offer a last crack towards her redemption. If that happens, the Ampatuans could serve again as GMA’s reliable allies, though this time, they were her unwilling allies unlike in year 2004 where they…

Erap, Rosalinda, Wowowee, GMA-7


  Erap, Rosalinda, Wowwowe, GMA7, – “Alin ang Naiiba?”,  goes a kindergarten  brain teaser.  Apparently,  two in the group are natural persons, while one is a  very popular noontime show and the other, a media conglomerate.  But despite their being entirely different from each other, they have the same thing in common; each represents our…

A Simple Credibility Problem for the Court


                                                     The Court of Appeal’s  sideshow of promoting the three lady justices who acquitted Lance Cpl.

The first time was in 1975 when Senator Ninoy Aquino ran against Imelda Marcos and her ticket for the Batasang Pambansa. I voted for Ninoy but he was cheated out…

Tehankee, Estrada and Martinez Pardon, A Cruel Politics!


            I had been a GMA admirer, partly because I respect her late father-president, Diosdado Macapagal.  Despite her being involved in the 2004 election cheating (“Hello Garci”), I still gave her the benefit of the doubt and had consoled myself with the idea of a “movie” star as President is “gross” compared to an economist at…
