Even revolutionaries need snacks

Fortunato Abat says he will push through with his June 25 march on the Palace. The Vice-President says, basically, he hopes politicians will stop being politicians and cease trying to take advantage of what’s going on.

Radio reports the police estimates the crowd at Liwasang Bonifacio has dwindled from 4,500 to 3,000 (mainly, the reporters suggest, because it’s merienda time).

It seems Susan Roces’s appeal to investigate, not march, seems to have taken the wind out of the sails of the opposition.

Butch Perez sends an amusing text message on quotable quotes for the times:

“Because things are the way they are, things will not remain the way they are.”
-Bertolt Brecht

“Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.”
-French Proverb

“Bahala na.”
-Filipino Theory of Everything, including Space-Time Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, and Political Science.
