CRITICAL REPORTING  
   
 
by: ELY P. DEJARESCO

There are now two courts in the country who want to be above each other. The Supreme Court vs. the Senate Impeachment Court. They are short of saying: they are above the law. Whatta court!

Stakes at impeachment Is a big-time P10B business Don't ever look at the 16th-day impeachment trial as merely about " accountability.".Yes, it is, but it is also a big-time business deal in our opinion.

Once, if and when CJ Corona is impeached, Hacienda Luisita (owned by PNoy's family), we believe, will eventually be paid P10 billion. Yes, P10 billion in people's tax money, instead of just P5 billion as decided by the Corona Supreme Court.

EDITORIAL  
   
 
It was an earthquake to remember. The 6.9 magnitude earthquake -never before to happen in this part of the globe -- shook the entire Negros island at ll:49 noontime of Monday, February 6, just when most people were preparing for lunch. Little did thousands of Negrenses know that at that very moment, various parts in the country and the world, which belonged to the "Pacific Ring of Fire" also experienced the same tectonic shock.

A tectonic shock is a movement of the earth's crust that causes ground dislocations both on the surface and underground. This time, the epicenter was underwater, at the Tanon steight some 40 kilometers below, and between the town of Tayasan and the island of Cebu.
