SONA 2014: Who's sleeping, who's texting
AJ Bolando (The Philippine Star) - July 30, 2014 - 10:45am

MANILA, Philippines - Given the prestige of the State of the Nation Address (SONA) and the limited number of people who were given the privilege to witness, in person, President Aquino deliver his speech, those who were inside the Batasan Pambansa's plenary hall should consider themselves lucky.

Philstar.com is among those privileged few, and while we were listening to President Aquino deliver his speech, we were also watching the special guests inside the plenary hall. Some guests were busy with their cellular phones and some were seen with their heads banging on their seats, asleep.

Aquino gave his penultimate speech on Monday, July 28, 2014, highlighting the benefits of the controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP). Given the fact that the DAP is one of the most controversial issues that resulted to burning arguments among the officials and the public, the attendees should have been all ears. But then again, you cannot force every one to abide by this expectation.
