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…

PREZ Digong’s ratings remain high. Why am I not surprised? In a country which voted as No. 7 senator a boxer who had vied for House “Top Absentee” and which may elect him as Prez in 2022, anything is possible. Like, ordering the killing of criminals which negates the presumption…

WILL Prez Duterte rely on his generals on how long martial law in Mindanao would last? Does he not see wisdom in Clemenceau’s cautionary counsel that war is too important a matter to leave to the generals? Civilian supremacy is our lodestar (but please, not civilians like Speaker Bebot Alvarez…

THE time will come for history to judge our current Supreme Court, which includes our paper’s “Justice” Jomar Canlas, who I commend for enterprise. Tunay, di pobulaang propeta. He has done it again. I am again shocked and awed. Our SC leaks like a sieve and has done nothing about…

PRO-DIGONG observers say PMAyer Sen. Sonny Trillanes bombed in his interview with the BBC’s Stephen John Sackur. Supposedly. I did not see it but I doubt that he did far worse than the Bedan Prez, for himself and our country, in the latter’s various interviews, in cumulation. Both have gotten…
