Hope springs eternal

By

I was curious to see how Jojo Binay would answer the charges being hurled against him at the Senate and postponed writing first thing in the morning last Monday, as is my wont, to listen to him. He was supposed to talk at 2 p.m. at the Philippine International Convention Center. His camp had advertised it beforehand as a 15-20-minute thing that would be “presidential” in tone and style.
