Language the unifier


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.

Putting our power supply at risk


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?


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 [...]

Law serves society


Let me start with a basic presumption: When the Supreme Court comes up with a split decision, it means it could have justified the decision either way.
