Here’s something very interesting: reporters both blogging about the same event and even the same interview: read what Jove Francisco and RG Cruz have to say about Michael Defensor and the self-grading by the Palace on its achievements. Both accounts, I think, underscores Newsstand’s critique of the President’s reports to the nation.
Bishop Angel Lagdameo reacts to official criticism (and possible investigations).
My Arab News column for this week is Overseas Filipinos Caught in Distant War Zones. A reader sent the following email,
I think your recent article on the plight of Pinoys in Leb. and at home was bang on. While there are some guys like you putting the sad reality forward there is some hope for the future.
Western visitors/relatives/spouses of Pinoys have known these things for years and it breaks our hearts. We can’t of course say anything. As you know criticism is not received very well at any level in the Phils culture from the “Puti”. Power to you.
London,Kuwait,Quezon City and Cebu
For which I’m very thankful.
My Inquirer column for today is Blessed like Franco.
