On Ninoy Aquino, a comment.

I was so impressed with the genius and the courage of this man. He also has the gift of gab that magnetized people to come and listen to him. I was so sad for his life cut short, and sort of grieved we would not have the pleasure of listening to his ideas. his thoughts, his musings. All of a sudden, though with much prodding, his wife took over,. and ran a nation with the way she knew best: attend to the family's needs. Little did she know that she was preparing her own son to a job his father has inadvertently loaded on his shoulders. I was shocked. or rather surprised by the brilliance of the son, his father's legacy personified in his statesmanship. and ran the nation with utmost moral ascendancy and genius absolutely befitting to be the hero's son. Thank you, Ninoy. for the supreme sacrifice. You gave us not only your life, but your family as well. It has brought the country to greater heights. But to Noynoy, is it too much to ask that you assist Leni, our veep? We need a leader like your father and mother again. We need you.

There's not much job for the Vice President unless what the President gives him and she's more on the housing thing. Come on, give his son noy a break, he's done too much work already. Others deserve a chance and the aquino had their chance twice and still people didn't change. Were in fact, they're still frustrated with the way of the way of society and country being run. He was forced to run, he didn't volunteer. If his mom didn't die, gave a real exagerrated burial w/ all camera's here and there, no one's gonna pick him to run.

Knight, by now, I would have wished, that you would not write without getting your facts verified and validated. Sweeping statements such as what you wrote here are uncalled for. You know the economy grew in the last six years, with so many investors trusting the Philippines with their capital. And the tourists came, and our country and our people were hailed. Ninoy Aquino brought us to new heights. His intelligence and statesmanship was exceptional.
