Rugby and national heroic leadership? The connection may seem farfetched but some 20 years ago, during a World Rugby Cup, a nation, and then the world, witnessed that link. So inspiring were the events that two films were made, one in Hollywood titled “Invictus,” and another, an ESPN documentary, titled “The 16th Man.” The latter was part of a series of ESPN documentaries, called “30/30” and featuring sports history, turning points for various sports.

Thank God there is the Senate, which must also pass the budget bill before it becomes final. Thank God there is Senator Santiago, who denounced on Monday the hidden pork in the proposed national budget for 2015.
Feisty Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago should again take a crack at the presidency of the Philippines in 2016, as she said, if she fully recovers from her bout with lung cancer before the year ends (“Miriam as presidential candidate ticks off possible running mates,” Front Page, 9/11/14).
I am writing because I am upset and angry that the Inquirer published an article written by Dr. Antonio Montalvan (“Coming soon: Miriam vs Benhur,” Opinion, 5/19/14) that was obviously written to discredit the Abads and, more so, Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago. Only a small portion of the article talked about Santiago, but the title was about her and Benhur Luy! Didn’t Mr. Montalvan read the news that Miriam was not on any list? Both Luy’s current and former lawyers have confirmed this.
