CONDOLENCES to the family of Sen. Helena Benitez, who I never met; also to the kin of Bong Daza, for whom I did a little unremembered (by me) favor 15 years or so ago. We met briefly at the Intercon, at his request, to thank me. He sent to our…

WE have just won against China. Frankly, I have not read the 501-page decision. Ingles pa po. I need time. I cannot intelligently explain or comment on what I have not read. I have to admire the courage of others. Heading our legal team is Paul Reichler, who represented Nicaragua…

PREZ Digong has pronounced five top police honchos as guilty. Which prober, prosecutor or judge would now dare contradict and embarrass him? A Prez is pledged “to do justice to every man.” The presumption of innocence is enshrined in our Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Human Rights. We…

Condolences—RC and Dudi Constantino, and Karina and Randy David, for the loss of Mom Letizia, widow of Ka Tato, an accomplished woman of many parts, including being an excellent ballroom dancer. Einstein warned that repeating the same mistake again and again and expecting different results is on this side of…

DEATH. We fondly bid goodbye to Manong Ernie Maceda, gone, a Senator’s Senator who had perfect attendance in the Senate in 1987-92, a record I shared. To us, nothing was more important than serving the people loyally. (Manong was a bar topnotcher and Harvard Man, which feats I am lucky…

IT is theorized that within the year, incoming Prez Digong Duterte may make a sentimental journey home to China. He has more Chinese blood than PNoy. Which companion will he bring? Less of a problem than visiting the Pope, who would prefer a Catholic Prez with only one married wife…

I saw Jose Ong for the last time last Tuesday in his wake in Manila Memorial, as if he were only sleeping. “Danny” was how I, along with his SBC Law ‘54 classmates, called him (I was with the ‘63 batch). I again asked why “Danny?” Just about everyone called…

LAST Monday, there was a birth anniversary Mass in Fr. Benigno Benabarre’s honor in San Beda (Mendiola). He turned 101. Excuse me, but I don’t go back that far, as you can see in my new pic above. Please compare with Hillary Clinton’s and Bongbong’s. (Sen. BB, changing “?” to…

I HAD wanted not to oppose my fellow Bedan Digong Duterte during his so-called political honeymoon period, but his early advocacy of the anti-poor-eye-for-an-eye-tooth-for-a-tooth-rape-the-rapist death penalty forces my hand, sandbags me and makes me do so now. (He’s our Prez-elect; what “presumptive” Prez? Reminds me of Consumptive.) The penalty was…
