Cover Girl of the May 28, 2014 Time issue is Li Na, a tennis star from China. A distinct merited honor. Chino Trinidad is heading a project to honor our athletic greats. I can only encourage the effort. I hope there is some way we can honor Victoria Manalo, whose…

Last Tuesday, we had lunch in Nihon Bashitei. “We” meant Jun Factoran, Ceres Doyo, Rochit Tanedo, Sol Juvida, Sylvia Mayuga, Flor Marie “Neni” Sta. Romana Cruz, Gemma and Irwin Ver, Jo-Ann Maglipon and Karina Bolasco. Not much I can report here from that Gathering of DOP – Dirty Old People.…

Those who want a shift to a jury system must show we can afford it. Last Monday, I (working with Medico-Legal Teresita Sanchez in a case of mother and child detained since early 2012), found myself with others packed like sardines in Imus. However, the Judge and her staff worked…

Writing about something one has not seen may create its own set of problems. I was in Malacañang last Monday night for the Obama dinner but cannot say “As I told the Presidents, . . .” When Susan Reyes escorted and seated me where my name card was, I found…

Benito (Benny) Tiamzon of Marikina and Wilma (Nene) Austria of Pasig met in Rizal High in Pasig. They were members of Class 1969, I am told, a time of ferment. I was in Class ‘55. I was an ordinary Section 1 stude and the effervescence of some of us was…

Benito Tiamzon and wife Wilma Austria­ Tiamzon are my fellow Rizal High alums. Both, I am told, were honor graduates (I wasn’t). I am proud of any fellow alum who puts him/herself where his/her mouth is, without counting the costs, for the sake of our unhappy Motherland. Rizal High taught…
