My late ever-loving wife, Dulce, would have loved seeing the Red Sox Nation doing so well (I saw Boston at three-ish a.m. last Tuesday, clinch the Division Series, for a shot at the whole enchilada versus the St. Loo Cardinals). Decades ago, when our love was new, we would be…

For the unelected judiciary, the mantra should be Malcolm’s “to doubt is to sustain” the work of the elected. I was incredulous to read about the orals in the Priority Assistance Development Fund when more than one Justice supposedly quickly apodictically prejudged it as unconstitutional.

A jealous woman reportedly cut off the manhood of her hubby. What human rights violation was/were involved? Given the principle of proportionality when it comes to sanctions, what might be the proper penalty to fit the crime. Restore death! – say the macho “buti pang mamatay!” types. In a case…

I have not met Dr. Roger Posadas. I heard about him in the early 70’s for being a political detainee while much of the nation slept, earning for us the epithet of being a nation of 40 million cowards and one son of a bitch (and one bitch, I would…

Rene Saguisag August I mark for another birth date (which I share with Chair Boy Brillantes, Magic Johnson, Fr. Zamora and Tim Tebow) and death anniversaries, Ninoy’s and Cory’s, Plaza Miranda victims, and Walking Tall Sheriff Buford). Ninoy Aquino at 50 ? Once again in search of his place in…
