ON frats, the right to associate, I believe, is in Section 8 of the Bill of Rights, Article III—we, old fogies and relics and young blood, have formed Artikulo Tres, which was at the Luneta last September 21, the day of protest the Prez shrewdly hijacked—of the Constitution, which speaks…

I DON’T know why we mark September 21, 1972 as the day when Marcos inflicted martial law via Proclamation 1081. It was a normal enough Thursday. But, for numerologist Macoy, the number 7 and any of its multiples, like 21, were sacred. I don’t know why we have to live…

PREZ Digong has a good Cabinet. He should make better use of it. He shouldn’t have to fight down his weight. Thus, his needless monologues and quarrels with certain senators who are better dealt with say, by Executive Secretary BingbongMedialdea, Justice Secretary Vit Aguirre or Presidential Legal Counsel Sal Panelo.…

TEENER Carl Angelo Arnaiz, ex-UP stude, was buried last Tuesday in Pateros. By happenstance, over the weekend I got this text message: “Lalli de Vera Lacaba, widow of my late brother, Eman, has just passed away.” It must have come from Pete Lacaba. The Lacabas are from Pateros. Eman I…

PREZ Digong making the clenched fist gesture with visiting Aussie spymaster Nick Warner was embarrassingly reminiscent of what Hitler’s troopers would do. For our Prez to sandbag a guest to do Hitler’s infamous “sieg heil” gesture with him is insensitive. Flak would follow. I agree that the gesture seems “entirely…

KIAN de los Santos was, well, just 17, if you know what I mean, and the way he looked, was way beyond compare. Very very dead he was. No, we are not reprising the Beatles. It is not in the national interest, in my view, to pressure Prez Digong to…

IN the last few weeks, at the Eclipse in Solaire where I dancexercise, during breaks, on the huge screen would be the dominant presence of Chinese showbiz characters, a novelty to me. They compete with mainly Caucasian types, now that the dazzlingly successful Celeste Solaire come-on ad for her triumphant…

I CONSIDER it a privilege to count, or have, Celeste Legaspi-Gallardo and hubby Nonoy as longtime supporters and friends. They helped in my 1987 Senate run when I won without spending a single centavo of my own. A free ticket. Only my pal, Orly Mercado, beat me in Metro Manila.…

CHEERS! Our softbelles just won a world championship in Hemet, California. Another first, we are told. I dunno where the dickens Hemet in California is. I am more familiar with San Francisco; there, a two-acre downtown park was named after our Victoria Manalo-Draves (late) who won two diving golds in…

OUR proud and profane Prez is said to aim for “a comfortable life for all.” There was discomfort a year or so ago in navigating Metro Manila’s traffic. Do we find such traveling “more” comfortable today? Where is his unquestioned bravery in, say, proposing no-garage-no-vehicle; or decreeing that vehicles more…
