Do you like this story?
1. Harry Tañamor lost on an emphatio fashion, ambushing any hope and expectation for an Olympic gold coming from him. What went wrong?
2. The life of the common Filipino is centered on only these few things: family, friends, work, daily transport, boxing, basketball, showbiz, and gossip. All they know is that the gas and food prices just go up and the president doesn't do anything about it. But they don't even have a clue that we buy our oil overseas, thus, we are dependent on the prices the Gulf States post. When asked about economics, charter change and the advantages of a federal government, they won't be able to answer a thing and quickly lash out at the President. To add, their knowledge about national issues are LARGELY DEPENDENT on what local media would feed them, which is full (fool) of crime news, telenovelas, and fantaseryes (fantasy/drama). Can we at least partly blame Filipino media for not at least elevating the Filipino mind-set?
3. Ninoy Aquino's Assasination will be remembered again on August 21st. It will be 25 years since his murder. Who's to blame? Why is the case still not solved? Who will have the biggest balls and pinpoint the real culprit behind it all? Can we dissolve the PCGG because they almost never seemed to work? I remember Mrs. Aquino in a Philippine Star interview years ago that she knows who killed her husband (no kidding). Why can't we put that person to jail? If lack of sufficient evidence still is the problem, at least mentioning the name of the people behind it would put some people into pressure to squeal the long-hidden secret.
Now, can you answer my questions?
