IT SEEMS Cebu City Vice Mayor Mike Rama is reluctant to give up his post as Sinulog Foundation Inc. chair, putting Sinulog organizers in a cliffhanger in getting the P12.2-million City Hall aid.

Mike Rama can easily give up the post because he can as easily reassume it after the Sinulog and, much more, when he becomes city mayor.

But a Commission on Audit exemption will surely spare him the trouble.

Some 100,000 Sto. Niño devotees joined the foot penitential procession Thursday dawn from Fuente Osmeña to the Basilica del Sto. Niño.

This outpouring of faith shows the other side of the festivities and fun of the Sinulog festival.

Pit Senyor!

Cebu Gov. Gwen Garcia, who has danced in the Sinulog grand parade since 2005, will dance again this year with Tabuelan's Ani-Anihan Harvest Festival.

No, her theme won't be "One Beat, One Dance, One Vision, One Cebu."

A justice of the Supreme Court (SC) said the high court's ruling affirming the cityhood of Bogo, Naga and Carcar in Cebu and 13 others elsewhere is flawed.

US Justice Robert Jackson put it this way, "We are final not because we are infallible, but we are infallible only because we are final."

In a new book, "Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America," biographer Peter Biskind said Hollywood's most notorious lothario, Warren Beatty, slept with 12,775 women.

Beatty, 72, must have a clear conscience because he got a lot of sleep.

How much sleep does Tiger Woods get with 14 women?

Excerpts of the book published by the New York Post said the number was Biskind's guesstimate based on "simple arithmetic."

The figure does not include Beatty's "daytime quickies, drive-bys, casual gropings, stolen kisses and so on."

We know of drive-by shootings but not of Warren Beatty's "drive-by."

He should also speak before young UV students for who knows someone from their ranks will be inspired and rise to become a future cabinet member.
