By

The story is told about a man who informed his wife that he was taking the 9 a.m. flight to Shanghai. Unfortunately, the plane crashed and neither the plane nor the survivors could be found. The end? No. because instead of taking the 9 a.m. flight to Shanghai, the husband took the 9 a.m. flight to Osaka, Japan, with his girlfriend. He is alive! The problem is: How will he explain that to his wife?!

Lying at the Pope’s expense

By

There are two ways of reading the meeting of Pope Francis and US President Barack Obama at the Vatican. The first is to read it as it actually happened, and that is what the terse communiqué from the Holy See did. The second is to read it from one’s bias, and that is what Obama himself did.

Justice’s two voices

By

Most people I talked with appreciated Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle’s impassioned critique of the pork barrel scam and his low-key presence at the Aug. 26 Luneta rally.
