A vote for redemption or perdition
Since early last month I have been speaking once or twice a week at forums on the stakes in elections, particularly in the upcoming one. My audiences are voters of various ages and social situations, and my enlistments, although unsolicited and coming at short notice, have such sort of serendipitous appeal I just cannot resist them.
A sick prospect
A PATHOLOGICAL phenomenon is emerging, and Rodrigo Duterte and Ferdinand Marcos Jr. have not only induced it but done so to the degree that, sick as the prospect might be, it may just carry them, respectively, to presidential and vice presidential victories.
A moral challenge
The specter grows with every affirming poll, yet we remain unprovoked, unmoved. But then, again, it’s very much in our character.
ON MARCH 19 the Lopez Museum and Library mounted a forum called “Newsroom Shutdown.” The audience comprised mostly millennials who had come to listen to stories of press censorship and other atrocities in Ferdinand Marcos’ martial law regime, the darkest years of the nation’s recent past that had come to pass well before they were born.
Rebel with a dubious cause
IT’S NOT about the song, it’s not about the dance, it’s not about any of those forms in which a story is told. It’s about the story itself—it’s about the truth.
A historic default
In search of a personal legacy, a direct and hopefully heroic connection to a crossroads in their nation’s history, postwar children asked their fathers, “What did you do in the war, Daddy?”
Seniorhood is a full-time job
The question seems to me to imply that one is either missed or suspected of indolence or, worse, of mischief. In any case, only Margaret Mitchell, by the sheer force of her personality and literary stature, could get away, so majestically, with her reply: “Doing? It’s a full-time job to be the author of ‘Gone With the Wind.’”
The rule of the herd
I didn’t think I’d ever have any misgivings with democracy.

Mother of all cases
You don’t realize how much energy Christmas takes out of you until you’ve gotten on in age. The season, particularly long as it is in our particularly merry case, ushered in by the first of nine dawn Masses (misa de gallo) before Christmas Day and shown out at the end of New Year week, feels even longer with each passing year. Surely you’ve noticed carols playing in department stores earlier and earlier—actually, every commercially exploitable season is made to run onto the next so that the year becomes one continuous marketing season.
