May God bless those who save His trees

By

Environment Secretary Ramon Paje finally woke up and stopped the massacre of trees in road-widening projects—but only after thousands of mature trees have already been felled. As many as 1,059 trees have been cut in Pangasinan. More trees have been cut in Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Bataan, Laguna, Iloilo, and other areas. Indeed, there seems to be an indecent haste to cut as many trees as fast as possible in spite of protests by local residents and environmental groups. Any tree on the side of a road is in danger.

Why the Constitution should not be amended

By

In a previous column, I said I have no objection allowing President Aquino another term by amending the Constitution if that will prevent Vice President Jejomar Binay from becoming president. But I am sure millions of Filipinos, me included, do not approve of Charter change to clip the powers of the Supreme Court (as President Aquino wants) or to allow foreigners to own land in the Philippines (as some congressmen have proposed) or to shift to a federal system of government (as Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III has suggested).

Manila ports not congested, but the streets are

By

Every night, the whole of C-5 Road is so full of cargo trucks that there is hardly any space left for other vehicles. The reason is the daytime truck ban, which is lifted late in the evening. So, like water in a dam roaring out when the dam gives way, all the cargo trucks that have been waiting all day rush at the same time to deliver their stocks. Result: The streets are even more congested than during the day.

Why Aquino should be allowed a 2nd term

By

I have no objection, personally, to giving President Aquino another term—if only to prevent Vice President Jejomar Binay from being elected president.
