  • Theanna: I feel sad for young Kisha and her pretty picture, spoiled by a tirade of "the political monstrosity obtaining (sic) in our country..." And it's you, (writer with no name) not her, who "virtually hurled a challenge..." I'm not a professional photographer but I know a lot about it. If this was supposed to be a sunset, where is the sun? If you called it "cogon grass with flowers" that would have been more appropriate. If the picture was enhanced, it was overdone and unrealistic.

  • Theanna: Thanks Judge for that timely and alarming info on the country's postal service. I thought that by now, things are much better than when I was there. May I add a few cents worth of fond remembrance of the late fabulous Fr. James Reuter, SJ? I never met him but my brothers and male relatives were all Ateneans and Fr.Reuter's name was often mentioned at our house. When I heard that Roxanne of Cyranno de Bergerac was being played by one of the handsomest guys in school, I had to see it. Also, my brother told us about the time our father and he met him on Ateneo Ave. After exchanging greetings, he asked father, " Is he your eldest son?" My father replied, "Oh no, my eldest son is a daughter." The whole family burst into tearful laughter. View Post
  • Theanna: Glad that you're back, Mr. Kenkoy. Missed you and my Bikol language lessons. My native dialect sounds foreign to me now. Kenkoy was my favorite pinoy komiks but I was caught reading American Archie when I was supposed to be following a book discussion in class. View Post

  • Theanna: Thanks for the above concerns. I thought I was the only one who sensed something odd, since I read the news printed under the Business section on Nov.15. I posted a comment, after much deliberation, on Nov. 17 re the offensive word in the headline. My simple arithmetic doesn't add up to the expected results of this huge 3billion peso project. I feel like the child in Hans Christian Andersen's story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". I can't figure out how the people there can generate 100 tons of garbage a day. View Post

  • Pastor Dan: Can we rely on the government to be able to address the perennial problem of hunger and malnutrition among marginalized children ? Your guess is as good as mine... I just thought we could be more introspective with the developmental role of privately funded NGOs.
