By: Manuel “Boy” Mejorada

THE island municipality of Caluya in the province of Antique seldom appears on the radar screen of most people.

By: Jess Dureza

THIS kind of "striptease" does not tantalize nor excite. It angers. The way the Mamasapano incident’s actual facts had been exposed slowly piece-by-piece is not scintillating at all. If only all those involved immediately bared all and gave full disclosure at the outset, the nation would have been spared this agonizing and divisive disrobing. Read more...
