Madness in the method

By

The UNA, says JV Ejercito, is perfectly willing to coalesce with the LP-NP-NPC, and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t. “It will be ideal since there is no clear-cut line between the opposition and the administration, not like the way things were during Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s time in 2007.” Such a super coalition would be good for P-Noy, allowing him to control Congress and push his legislative agenda virtually unopposed.

Still, leave it to the artists

By

“Id I had the choice,” says Edgardo Angara, chair of the Senate education committee and board member of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, “I would have given the title to Dolphy while he was still alive, if only to show appreciation for the unique talent he possessed. Dolphy is really more than deserving of the National Artist award…. What he did was an extraordinary thing—making the entire Filipino people laugh.”

Not in my name

By

I actually thought twice before deciding to respond to Rolly Pelinggon Jr.’s response to my column, “Crimes of the mind.” Pelinggon’s response comes in the form of a paid ad in the Inquirer (7/11/12) that covers nearly the entire page. I thought twice about responding to it not just because the writing is pedantic, the style of politicians and lawyers who imagine (alas, wrongly) that the more convoluted they are the more profound they sound, but because the reasoning is self-defeating. It’s a good example of how to refute yourself.

In passing

By

I had written my last column for last week before Dolphy crossed over to the great beyond. The days that followed were devoted to mourning his death and celebrating his life in equal measure. The outpouring of grief and love has been overwhelming and warms the heart. I cannot let his passing go without saying something, if only in passing.

Big things

By

Talk about looking at things from a broader perspective, you can’t get any broader than by doing so from the perspective of the universe. Which the discovery of the Higgs boson, or the so-called “God particle,” forces you to do.
