Days after the elections, we watched Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver in grad school cinema studies class. It wasn’t my first time to see the film.

Nehemiah is a 15-year-old boy who lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His track record shows that he has never been in conflict with the law. He is not a juvenile delinquent nor had he any history of trouble. Investigators say that his home did not have any emergency calls recently. Practically, he lived with loving, caring parents in a wholesome family environment.

He found himself a table at a popular watering hole. It has been over a year since he was here. And he wondered why it felt almost as if he was returning into a strange world. The “new” place strained to contain his store of old memories. That particular table is still there. A boat used to hang there from the ceiling. It is there no longer. He had been told there are fewer rats now. He will have to take their word for it. He found the place essentially changed though not completely so. It felt different.

Russian food to me immediately translates to caviar [...]
She hasn’t even arrived in Congress yet and already, Rep.-elect Aileen Radaza came out with a proposal to create a Mactan province separate from Cebu province. The proposal actually came from her father, outgoing Rep. Arturo Radaza of Lapu-Lapu City’s lone district who supposedly reviewed the census of the population of Olango Island, Lapu-Lapu City [...]

There are games that can be played alone and there are much more games that are best played and enjoyed with others. I recall back in high school how, after our last afternoon class, we would congregate in one of the many cul-de-sacs. No one was exempt from these ‘group games’ like tag, patintero, and [...]

The Catholic bishops of Bacolod and Lipa were shell-shocked by the election results. Earlier, they shoved candidates, who supported the reproductive health bill, into a “Team Patay”. Through ads and sample ballots, they urged repudiation. Juan Edgardo Angara, Alan Peter Cayetano, Loren Legarda and Francis Escudero, however, coasted into slots 2,3,4 and 7, reported Inquirer’s [...]
This is one lesson we learned all over again in the aftermath of the country’s midterm elections in the hottest summer season we have sweltered through in years. And on a most auspicious date yet, last Monday, the (lucky?) 13th of the month. Early on, with my helpers, a married couple, we hied off to [...]
With yesterday’s scheduled proclamation of senatorial candidates and a good number of local officials around the country, one can fairly say that the precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines did its work in ensuring accuracy and speed of the election process.

After the (some say) surprising come-from-behind victory of Mayor Mike Rama against his mentor-turned-tormentor, people are now saying that Cebu City is finally about to turn a corner.
