And now, a word from a ‘jologs’ – INQUIRER.net, Philippine News for Filipinos

“Do [these society mainstays] deserve it? The character assasinations, no. However, that’s the price I suppose, for hogging the spotlight—especially in a country like ours, where the spotlight needs to shine on more urgent matters.” Nice. Hear, hear, Mr. Cadiz! Haven’t really commented online on the whole blog scandal that has Manila riveted these days, although of course, like everyone else, I’ve discussed it with friends. What can I say, everyone’s afflicted with Schadenfreude! Or the Filipino version, crab mentality.

Not to take anything from Mr. Gorell’s plight, but I can’t help but wonder though, that if Filipinos are capable of so much vitriol, why don’t we unleash it also on people even more deserving of it—like GMA and her ilk! Think of the cleansing power of this much scorn! We’d be rid of graft and corruption in no time.

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
