SY FILES: Si Bullet

Ni Susan V. Yadao

“Mama, nasagaan ng kotse si Bullet!” “Tumakbo kasi siya sa kalsada!” “Natakot ako nakita ko ng masagaan siya. ” Hindi namin nakuha ang plate number ng kotse.” “Mama, kawawa naman si Bullet!”

Sabay sabay na pagbabalitang ipinasalubong sa akin ng mga bata noong magtatakip-silim na araw Sabado pag-uwi ko mula sa trabaho. May sumisigaw, may nanginginig at shocked pa ang mga bata na nabigla sa bilis ng pangyayari. Nangyari daw ito sa kahabaan ng kalsada ng tambac malapit sa aming bahay at ilang metro lamang mula sa lugar kung saan pinatay ang aking anak na si Zharlene.

Hindi ko maunawaan ang naramdaman ko. Na-shocked din ako. Bigla ako nanghina at bumigat ang dibdib. Parang gusto kong umiyak pero walang malaglag na luha. Hindi naman kasi kami malapit sa isa’t isa ni Bullet.

Two more expressways are being mulled for North Luzon including one that will connect La Union to Laoag City, President Macapagal-Arroyo revealed yesterday in her third visit to Pangasinan this year.

Mrs. Arroyo recently inspected the newly-started civil works in barangay Tumana West in Rosales town which will form part of the 88-kilometer Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX). In her remarks after she was briefed on the status of the project, she bared that San Miguel Corporation will be submitting plans to construct under the build-operate-transfer (BOT) scheme expressways that will link La Union to Laoag City, and Nueva Ecija to Cagayan.

She said that even she was no longer president, construction of said projects would continue with the involvement of the private sector in the government’s infrastructure program.

Perspectives: Biazon’s caretaker government

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

In the concluded Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey tussle, most of the spectators was disappointed the way Clottey handled himself.

People were expecting a war, not a wimp hiding in a turtle shell from the Pacman.

“But that’s the kind of defense one has to deal with Manny (Pacquiao, not Villar) if he wants to survive a knock-out!” I told GMA-7 TV after the staff there asked me to give my post fight analysis.

“The other kind of defense to survive the nuclear fall-out from Pacquiao is to use the hit and hug of Bernard Hopkins. As what I told you last week, I would not be surprised if Clottey survived the entire round with his kind of defense,” I continued.
