President meddling in impeachment trial, why not?

This is in reaction to the Inquirer editorial of Jan. 27, “Did P-Noy meddle?” An impeachment is a national inquest that cannot exclude anyone like the president, our No. 1 political animal.

No excuse

Some initial news reports on last Tuesday’s indictment of Renato Corona and his wife Cristina played up the irony angle, noting that despite the latest revelations about the supposed “flaws” in the impeachment trial of the then chief justice in 2012, the Ombudsman still found probable cause to charge the spouses with eight counts of [...]

As if we had a better choice

By

January 2014 is only the year’s first month but it already shows how the rest of the year can go.   A low pressure area dumps its rains in northern Mindanao and kills about 40, an early glimpse of a weather pattern that can continue to be deadly. It did not cause undue alarm to [...]

Bottom of the barrel

By
