To bury or not to bury

Teresa R. Tunay, OCDS …and that’s the truth   It is disturbing how the issue of to-bury-or-not-to-bury a former president in the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB) has dragged on for months. Appeals are made, signatures are gathered, protest rallies are held, debates are staged and media interviews continue ad infinitum. Over what? Why the [...]

Du30 and De5

Teresa R. Tunay, OCDS …and that’s the truth   Whether I enjoy it or not, a vital part of my work as a communicator is to keep abreast of the news. But each time I turn on the TV for the day’s first dose of the headliners, I hear myself mumbling, “Here we go again—will [...]

Simplicity and Duterte

Teresa R. Tunay, OCDS …and that’s the truth FIRST thing that greeted me on Facebook this morning is a news item from a friend, a Protestant—headlined “Three Bishops praise president-elect Rodrigo Duterte”.  And it began thus:  “This is not a satire news. It’s real!  The president elect has received praises from three Catholic Bishops…”  The [...]

P. I.

Teresa R. Tunay, OCDS …and that’s the truth   PHILIPPINE Islands. That’s what our geography teacher in Grade School told us “P.I.” stood for—our Motherland. It’s in history books, in world maps, world atlas, encyclopedias, etc. But what does “P.I.” remind you of now, when you read it in the news? President Incoming? Of course. [...]
