DID YOU WONDER...
... WHY FORMER PRESIDENT MARCOS is still not considered buried even if he is placed in a refrigerated casket in Batac, Ilocos Norte?
The meaning of “burial” may partly explain the current furor. If Marcos is already considered buried, there’s no need for another burial unless the change is for a loftier site: from a private crypt to a heroes’ cemetery. It will then be a transfer of burial.
If he’s not yet considered buried, then he has to be buried just like any other mortal, under the ground or in a crypt, minus, obviously the refrigeration.
... WHY THEN PRESIDENT NOYNOY AQUINO REPORTEDLY IGNORED THE SOLUTION arranged by then vice president Jojo Binay for Marcos’s body to be buried in Batac?
Had that solution, agreed upon with the Marcos family, been implemented, there wouldn’t have been the controversy raging now, a Binay ally said.
The corpse’s state then: not yet laid to rest, be it in Ilocos Norte or anywhere else.
... HOW SOME LEGAL PLEADINGS CAN BE INTERESTING READING? When it uses not just legalese but apt language that evokes images, such as this line from Vice President Leni Robredo’s motion with the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to dismiss Bongbong Marcos’s election protest:
... WHAT FLAK PNP CHIEF BATO DE LA ROSA IS GETTING for his public posturing to push President Duterte’s campaign?
Not direct criticisms but oblique potshots, such as a former senator calling him loquacious (he talks too much) and the CPP-NPA saying his “lectures” to subordinate cops are torture.
... WHY THEY CALL THE PLAN OF PRESIDENT DUTERTE TO TRIM THE BUREAUCRACY “RIGHT-SIZING” AND NOT “UNDERSIZING”?
If they end up hiring even more people in government jobs, the use of the word “under-sizing” will turn out to be embarrassing, even disgraceful. Past presidents and mayors didn’t quite succeed in reducing government labor force. They didn’t want to pad national unemployment stats.
