This is in reaction to the news report titled “3 Dasma guards who stopped Binay convoy held, freed” (Front Page, 12/19/13).

Much has been said about the standoff between Makati Mayor Junjun Binay’s convoy and the Dasmariñas Village security guards who refused to let the former pass through a gate which was supposed to be closed at certain hours of the night. There was another gate close by that was always open.
What a horrible experience it must have been for the poor security guards manning the Banyan-McKinley gate in Dasmariñas Village, Makati City, after an encounter with the hooligans of Mayor Junjun Binay. These poorly paid security personnel who were just implementing a security protocol were hauled to the police station for offending the sensibilities of a bully political family.
We find it unfortunate that the Inquirer statement on the Dasmariñas incident misses the point: The reporter relied on an unnamed source who fed her lies. Not several sources, but principally just one source, as clearly stated in the Dec. 19 story.

There she is on YouTube, ABS-CBN’s president and chief executive officer laughing at the disgusting jokes of the clown who calls himself Vice Ganda.
With the expected victory of political neophyte Nancy Binay in the recent senatorial race, the power of the Binay brand has been proven anew.
I am not a fan of Senator-elect Nancy Binay. But each time she is poked fun at because of her skin complexion, I, as an Ibanag, feel offended. Vice President Jojo Binay and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile are Ibanag like me. We hail from Cagayan Valley. The Ibanag represent the second largest language [...]
The biggest winner in the 2013 elections is Grace Poe, because nobody saw it coming. The biggest loser is Sixto Brillantes, but then, he had it coming.

The defect in the proclamation of the winning senatorial candidates has been corrected, according to election lawyer Romulo Macalintal, who criticized the proclamation soon after the first six senators were proclaimed. Macalintal was one of the three guests at the Kapihan sa Manila at the Diamond Hotel last Monday. The two others were Dr. Honorata L. Catibog, director of the Department of Health’s National Center for Disease Prevention and Control, and Dr. Anthony P. Calibo, also of the same center and a specialist in the care of the newborn.
United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) senatorial candidate Nancy Binay has been skipping the senatorial fora sponsored by media networks and other election NGOs. This appears to be a deliberate strategy of her campaign to shield her from closer and deeper public scrutiny, inasmuch as she is obviously incapable of articulating policy positions on the various national issues confronting our country. It is also quite obvious that she does not possess the credentials, the intelligence, the training, the discipline and the skills necessary to engage other candidates in a public debate on any of the important public policy issues of the day.
The latest Social Weather Stations survey hints at an electoral landscape in a wild flux. Just last January, United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) candidate Jack Enrile, son of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, was riding high in the poll with a 46-percent rating, ranking 8-9 in the senatorial derby. Now he’s down to rank 13, with a 38-percent survey rating.
First, let me greet everybody with the note that I subscribe to the Inquirer specifically for its content on the editorial and opinion pages. The generally morbid, gory details of the news can be had anywhere. So on Feb. 14, just like any morning, I opened the pages of the Inquirer but found, to my dismay, the editorial titled “Unqualified.”
