IT’S a mistake to blame entirely the toxic political climate in Arizona for the shooting rampage there last week that left six people dead and 14 injured, including Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who is still battling for her life due to a single gunshot wound to the head at point-blank range.

IF the Commission on Audit (COA) had not intervened, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile would have continued authorizing the release of the monthly allocation for the Senate staff of murder-suspect-in-hiding Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson.

THIS one came two nights after Christmas but it brought a mighty city to its knees.

PLAYING Scrooge at Christmas is heart-wrenching and this is what the United States Senate did when it squelched a bill granting legal status to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant students, including Filipinos across the U.S.

PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino was correct when he instructed the Philippine ambassador to Norway not to attend the awarding ceremony of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, making it appear he did so at the request of China which boycotted the rites because one of the honorees was a dissident Chinese writer.
