Our eldest, Manuel “Mano” died on Sunday, July 24, 2011. He wrote the cover article for the OpinYon isyu of that week – the Protest of Senator, now Senate President Aquilino “Koko” de la Llana Pimentel III against Miguel “Migs” Zubiri in the May 2007 Senatorial Elections.

Leaving the Chinese Ghost Month and Our 91 Year Old House

YESTERDAY

ALMOST forty - four years ago, President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos, declared and implemented Martial Law. That would last formally for eight and a half years.

However, his authoritarian grip on power would last for five more years or a total of thirteen and a half years.

Since these events happened in September 1972, March 1981 (Formal Lifting of Martial Law) and February 1986, we will discuss and recount them some other time.

However, what is relevant is that soon after declaring Martial Law on September 21, 22 and 23 (Thursday, Friday and Saturday), a Chinese Drug Dealer by the name…

UNTIL I read the recent commentary of the eminent William J. Bennet about Donald Trump, I had always cringed at the thought that Filipino politicians were the most undistinguished and seediest in the world, in particular reference to how ravenously they are driven by power and money.

It is a situation that has been evolving in other countries with very violent consequences. Part of the problem is that the masterminds of this problem don't really care about lives.

 Can and Will Duterte Declare Martial Law?

By Linggoy Alcuaz

TODAY

In his second month in office, President Rodrigo “Digong” Roa Duterte has normalized his relations with the public through the mass media. He quietly lifted his boycott of direct face-to-face relations with the mass media in general. In late June, he stopped holding press conferences and interviews. He limited his communication with the mass media through the official government media.

In the past two weeks he has held several evening and after midnight press conferences. On the evening of Friday, July 29, he announced the cancellation of the unilateral government ceasefire which he announced during his SONA…
