There is a saying, “no news is good news,” which comes out of the idea that something is newsworthy only if it is about disasters, crimes and scandals.

Post office still crooked on ‘tuwid na daan’

Last October, I received a greeting card airmailed to me by my son in Australia. It appears to have been tampered. One side of the envelope is slit/cut and it is obvious that the contents have been examined. The post office’s staff never even bothered to explain why this was so. It appears that such vandalism is officially sanctioned. I’ve experienced this many times before.

Philippine courts no longer relied on as champions of justice

Notwithstanding the brickbats being hurled at Senate investigations into the alleged corrupt practices of Vice President Jejomar Binay as nothing more than grandstanding theatrics or worse (e.g., “in aid of election” to a higher office), they serve a very useful purpose.

Binay’s debate withdrawal exercise of prudence

I respectfully beg to differ from the seemingly overwhelming opinion of the public that Vice President Jejomar Binay had shown monumental cowardice in suddenly withdrawing from his scheduled public debate with Sen.

For me, participating or defaulting from a so-called “debate” which, truth to tell is not, displays not so much one’s personal bravery or cowardice as good discretion founded on sheer logic.

Binay sets bad example for PH’s future leaders

How will we teach our young the values that our forefathers passed on to us? How will we set a good example of what the true essence of valuing one’s word and promise is? Can we show a better example for them to see? If you, like me, can’t find the right answers to these questions, then are we ready to accept the snuffing out of Rizal’s hope for his beloved “Filipinas”?
