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.

THE Supreme Court last week handed the Aquino Administration a legal drubbing when it declared in a 10-5 vote as unconstitutional the highly-touted Truth Commission headed by former Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr.

The holiday season is here. From peppermint lattes and potato latkes, carols to dreidels, there are reminders at every twist and turn.
