Hello, Joseph, Thanks for your well researched article. Timely too, considering the commemoration of the People Power Revoluion twenty six years ago, which deposed President Marcos. But the PD Inquirer says "Fidel Ramos: Impeachment won’t solve poverty" DJ Yap writes FVR assails the "infighting between government branches as seen through the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona." “That’s why now what we need is cooperation of all Filipinos and that’s something that won’t be attained just by impeachment,” said Ramos, one of the key players of Edsa I. “Because there are still beggars, there are still starving people and there are still jobless people, impeachment will not solve the problem of poverty, inequity, and lack of jobs and a declining economy,” he said. I'll write Jun Delfin about this, as he follows news re FVR. A formula is in FVR's recent book, Best Practices--Teamwork in Nation Building. The magic potion is in the subtitle, his "A Call to the Filipino People to Reform, Perform and Transform." Reminds me of Bobby Reyes' article on "Reinventing the Philippines." As to whether or not Corona can make a comeback if convicted, Fred Natividad observes that "the United States extracted a dictator from his angry country. The son of the dictator is now a senator. His daughter is a governor. The dictator's wife was elected to Congress." So there. Why would Corona not be abl to retrieve his crown? According to you, he may even run for a political position, this time, maybe--I guess, for the throne! But the point is, can he be convicted, given the unclear or lack of evidence against him? Fortunately, Sen. Enrile, known too for his major role in EDSA '86 is once more a leading voice in the Senate. Meantime, the broken pieces of PNoy's relations with the Judiciary create a drama between a hero and a villain. Question is, who's who? Lourdes
