Philippines News, Philippines Headlines

BELOW, from Ted Laguatan in San Francisco, what I received on the feast of the Immaculate Conception. On Dec. 28, 2017, be it remembered, December 8 was declared a special nonworking holiday via a bill signed into law at that time by Prez Duterte, Republic Act 10966, proclaiming Her as our Principal Patroness — mirabile dictu! Ted emailed:

The development would probably mean that Digong wouldn’t ever set foot in the US, where jurisdiction may be acquired over him, the way it did over Macoy when he was taken to Hawaii in 1986. Philadelphia lawyer Bob Swift and our Joe Mari Velez had summons served on him there in a class suit they lodged right after EDSA ‘86.

“MC has done so many good things in the SoMA area and he also started the San Francisco Lantern Festival, an annual pre-Christmas event that has been going on in the SoMA area for more than 15 years now. Beautiful Philippine-inspired lanterns are displayed after a parade in SoMA and it is a big event and tourist attraction in SoMA every year. Taga-San Fernando kasi siya.

Last December 6, also from Jojo: “Hi Rene, I read with great interest your `Heroes and martyrs; Cory’s memoirs’ piece. “Bulletx and her late husband, Tito Pete, would tell me that you represented her after she was arrested and detained during the dark years. Palaging bukas ang bahay nila sa lahat ng activists at cause-oriented people na nagpupunta o napapasyal sa San Francisco. Her daughter, Marnelle `Bingo,’ went there last week to represent the family sa Bantayog honoring para kay Tita Bulletx.”Kudos also to the athletes and officials who did extremely well in the Southeast Asian (SEA)Games.

Gutter lingo and frequent cussing, which our kids read wouldn’t improve their language. So while the SEA Games we are all happy about, forlorn we are about the results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) undertaken by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development showing that, among 79 countries, we are kulelat in reading literacy and second lowest in both mathematical and scientific literacy — disheartening.China topped in all three subjects. The US was No.
