    To better understand statements coming from the Palace, it is time to brush up the meaning of these words: OUT OF CONTEXT – without the surrounding words or circumstances and so not fully understandable. MISQUOTE – a piece of written or spoken text taken inaccurately.

    HYPERBOLE – exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.

    JOKE – a thing that someone says to cause amusement or laughter, especially a story with a funny trick played on someone for fun.

    One achiever of PRRD’s cabinet that deserves attention is DOE Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi. His quiet, unassuming character and competent management style has achieved so much in his first 100 days.

He is most happy seeing the smiles of relief of the recipients and beneficiaries. Way to go Secretary Al.
