A very busy fortnight, and it only got busier last weekend. But I did manage to write a Commentary for the newspaper on Jesuit education, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of my high school class. And I wrote my first column for inq7.net: That little corner of the world is called Newsstand too, and it materializes on the sidewalk, like an illegal vendor’s stall, every first working day of the week. What were you thinking, Joe?
PS. The other day, Caloy Conde argued powerfully for his view that it was the terrorism threat that actually forced the President’s hand and led to the postponement of the 12th Asean summit. Today he says he can find merit in the other view, summarized in today’s Inquirer editorial, that political considerations were behind the decision to postpone. Perhaps it was a confluence of both?
