‘Yolanda’ and the Berlin Wall

By

In remembering the horror and devastation of Supertyphoon “Yolanda” on its first anniversary on Nov. 8, I was dismayed at the rather defeatist and cynical atmosphere that pervaded the media coverage of that commemoration. I was disappointed that news reports chose to dwell on the perceived animosities between politicians instead of building confidence among the people that they, together with their government, can succeed in rebuilding their lives and create a future worth looking forward to.

Corazon Malanyaon, one of the public officials he accused of involvement in illegal logging, as having been “devastated” by the exposé. This is not true. I would like to correct this impression.

The truth behind what made ‘Pablo’ horribly deadly

This refers to Mon Tulfo’s column, “Influential people in illegal logging named” (Inquirer, 12/15/12).
