« Update (3.05pm) | Main | Noises stage right: the Philippine military considers its options »

February 24, 2006



I appreciate your first-hand coverage.
The events in Manila are not quite front-page here - CNN has also buried it behind other stories and hasn't reported anything substantial. Today The Washington Post ran a story about the failure of democracy in the Philippines - which is a bit much, I think, considering the state of things in other SE Asian countries. The article did not mention much about a coup.

And the current US administration seems just about as corrupt as any of the Filipino political clans.

The Philippines are somewhat "hot" right now after the mudslide (which happened to occur on a slow news day here) - last Monday Martha Stewart ran a rather clumsy Filipino cooking segment (um, adobo of course), replete with a folk dancing demonstration!
anyways, keep us posted - we're not what is going on here either!
