8 glasses a day

By

Last week I talked about the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System’s abrogation of its contract through the exclusion of tax it had committed to include. But there were other questionable decisions it made. It said there were some errors in the financial reports submitted by the concessionaires, but these are relatively minor items that could have been clarified with the latter, particularly as the external, independent auditors had found no such faults.

Built on the gentle slope of a hill at the edge of the sprawling campus, the house of the maestra was one of the pioneer homes in UP Diliman.

Mindless opposition

By
