It’s up to us

By

I had a couple of heartening responses to my column last week from friends in the Aboitiz family through their charitable donations, and from my good friend Jun Magsaysay. The golf tournament was a very successful event, graced by former president Fidel Ramos’ indomitable spirit (how he keeps going in such an indefatigable way I’m damned if I know). We raised enough funds to help seven families start a new life. The winner of the tournament was Nino Bandoquillo, with Sgt. Alex Dagooc as first runner-up (whatever happened to the second of my youth in sports?). Villamor Golf Club under Col. Oscar Calingasan did a great job of organizing and feeding.

But isn’t it always time to think of others?

Whose side?

By

Whose side would you rather be on? The United States that tries to force free trade on countries, or China that tries to annex portions of your land (and sea)?

Some pet peeves

By

I’m going to clear my desk a little (you should see the mounds of paper on it; I think there’s a desk underneath) with some notes I’ve made as events happen.

Language the unifier

By

I know it’s unpopular with the nationalists, but I’ve long argued the importance of not losing English as the country’s principal language. Yes, losing. When my wife went to school in the ’50s and ’60s, English was the language of tuition and the language at home together with Tagalog.

Bureaucracy review needed

Peter Wallace’s column, “DICT is not addition” (Opinion, 2/6/14), deserves attention by our leaders. Not that I conclusively agree with the idea of setting up an agency dedicated solely to technology, namely a Department of Information and Communications Technology, but Wallace has certainly cited quite succinctly the reason for the creation of such. Indeed, digitalization seems inevitable both in e-government and e-governance. Bureaucracy and the operations of government increasingly become unimaginable without the technology. But that is beside the point.

‘Untrue, speculative’ view on RH, power rate cases

Thank you for Peter Wallace’s views on two cases pending before the Supreme Court, as expressed in a portion of his column “DICT is not addition” (Opinion, 2/6/14), specifically on the reproductive health and power rate increase petitions.

Putting our power supply at risk

By

Somehow, whenever there’s a cost increase in something, the immediate reaction is that someone must be gouging the public, some profit-hungry company determined to make as much profit as it can in whatever nefarious way it can. Those who complain so loudly don’t seem to care much about facts.

Does he have a conscience?

By

I’ve seen some very disturbing numbers that Mighty Corp. has to refute far better than it has so far. Let me start with just one—cost of manufacture. Over the past 11 months since the sin tax increase, Mighty, a small (3 percent of the market at the time) cigarette manufacturer owned by a Mr. Wong [...]
