Cedric Lee and cohorts are in jail. People celebrate.

Is this case (finally) reaching its end? Cedric Lee was apprehended, Deniece Cornejo has turned herself in. Can't wait until this is out of the news? We hear you. Did you read about the Benham Rise? We acquired new land in 2012 and that seems like more relevant news. What about that Napoles list? That seems to concern more people than this case. Oh well. At least justice is being served.

Yes, the Internet connection is slow!

We'll give it to you straight: there are just way too many "netizens" in the Philippines.  Senator Bam Aquino wants to address the issue, but one thing is clear: the service providers just can't handle the demand. It's like the Internet in the Philippines is the patriarch of a polygamous marriage. There are just one too many wives being serviced. Sorry we had to put it that way. It's just the timeliest metaphor at hand.




What on earth is EDCA?

It basically allows the US to use the Philippines to refuel their planes, train their troops, and preposition military assets. Where? We don't know. Scary? You bet. The Senate Defense Committee wants to investigate the fine print, but it's been 10 years of being an "ally." We've been Christopher Lao-d. Damn it.
