  Long food lines continue...
Not all earthquake victims have yet been served. The DSWD, the Red Cross, the LGUs, NGOs and People's Organizations continue to pour food assistance to long lines of unserved earthquake victims such as this one in Ayungon.

 
 


   
HEADLINE  
   
 
Muntinlupa Congressman Rodolfo Biazon, Chairman of the Committee on National Defense and Security, stressed the need for the revision of the current hazard maps used by both national and local agencies to reflect the changes of the nature, cycle and path of disasters.

In Friday's committee hearing, the former senator pointed out that the revised hazard map must reflect the changing patterns and nature of disasters including landslides and rockslides, flooding, tsunami, earthquake and volcanic eruptions.

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   
 
If someone offers a senator P100 Million each just to convict CJ Corona, and on the other hand, another offers each senator two million solid votes in the next election just to acquit CJ Corona, which do you think is the most attractive offer? You be the judge. Email your answers to me at dejaresco_ely@yahoo.com.

Tuesday's mammoth INC rally nationwide, which was projected as a religious exercise cannot be denied that it had political undertones even if left unsaid, and even denied.

What are these undertones?

EDITORIAL  
   
 
The political nature of the impeachment trial of the Chief Justice, we believe, has caused its sudden if not abrupt end. Not exactly the end that was Tuesday, but its impending end like within this month, because the prosecutors have surprisingly rested their case, and withdrew five of its eight grounds or articles of impeachment.

It is now time for the defense team to present it's eveidence.

Wittingly or unwittingly, the massive show of force, 600,000 - strong of the Iglesia ni Cristo, at the Quirino grandstand, may have been successfully, camouflage as a purely religious exercise, but people only know too well that the unseen hands of politics could not be far behind.

READERS' VIEWS  
   
 
Dear Editor:

I would like to refer to your issue of February 26, 2012, particularly the front page article, Damages down P665M to 507M. On page 18, there is a sentence referring to Banica and Ocoy rivers as "killer rivers." It is unfortunate that our rivers are branded as such. There are no killer rivers, but there are dangerous floods that sometimes take lives because we choose to build our homes in its path. One of the main causes of flooding is deforestation due to overlogging which is also an activity of man. Our rivers are life-giving, the source of water needed for life to grow.
