Between a rock and a hard place....

Tomorrow, after a long drawn trial which has lasted for almost six years, the Sandiganbayan is finally scheduled to render its verdict on the plunder case of former President Joseph Estrada.

Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place.

Acquit Estrada, and EDSA II will be reduced to nothing more than a sham political event, an example of how extra-Constitutional means were adopted for removing from office without due process what would amount to be a President innocent of any wrongdoing.

Convict Estrada, and earn the ire of perhaps millions of Erap (and even FPJ) supporters who believe their idol to be innocent of all charges, convicted only as a sacrificial lamb if only to justify his removal from office and the "unlawful" assumption of then Vice President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to the Presidency.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

And it's all happening tomorrow.

Watch the news tomorrow people. Whatever happens, whatever the consequences, it will be histo…

Wake Me Up When September Ends

One of my favorite songs. Fits the month...the day...even my mood.

Green Day

Summer has come and passed
The innocent may never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my fathers come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Ring out the bells again
Like we did when Spring began
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my fathers come to pass
Twenty years …

Vanessa Hudgen's lapse in judgment....

Image
A few days ago, Fil-Am teen sensation Vanessa Hudgens, lead actress of the hit Disney Channel films High School Musical and High School Musical 2 was caught with her pants down...literally, after photos of her in the buff circulated freely on the internet.

The photos were taken privately, and as is usual for nude pictures of famous celebrities, found their way to the internet much to the embarrassment and dismay of Disney, which is renowned for family-oriented films and television programs.

Hudgens has issued a public apology over the incident, which her publicist has described as a "lapse in judgment". Disney will continue to retain her services, unwilling to mess with an already proven formula.

Personally, I don't really consider her nude photos to be a big deal, except of course for the fact that posing in her birthday suit doesn't really jive with the corporate standards and target audience of the Disney Channel. Being signed up with a studio known for cartoons and…

September again....

September again. The first Sunday. The first day of the Bar exams.

*sigh*

Maybe next year.

Good luck to everyone taking it this year.

Wake me up when September ends.
