  • 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. View Post
  • 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. The NGOs can play a crucial role in addressing this issue... more so if the present dispensation manifest some tangible support for them... View Post

Dae naman yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte ta aram naman ninda na drama man sana an labanan kan mag-amang Luis asin L-Ray. Sa quinto distrito (Rinconada), Manoy Joel, yaon baga si dating Cong Nancing Alfelor. Aram man sana kan gabos na Rinconada na iyo ini an tunay na LP bakong si Fortuno. Dae naman pati yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte nin huli ta bistado na an iwal-mag-ama na sarong pakitang-tao lang tangaring sinda-sinda na sana an maglaban sa eleccion, eh, ngonyan yaon ka dyan Manoy, dikit na sacripisyo na lang, hahalion na an mag-ama asin ma-ibabalik na an Kapitolyo sa mga tao.
