If my companions didn’t intercede on my behalf, I would’ve strutted down the Champs Elysées wearing a beret, holding an impressive-looking baguette and whistling La Vie en Rose. Who am I kidding?

[Summary] => Not to disparage the testimony of Marine Brig. Gen. Francisco Gudani before the Senate, but when "Lanao del Sur" was mentioned yesterday, those old enough to do so did a double-take and recalled the tale from the era of the late Apo Ferdinand E. Marcos.

This isn’t Noli de Castro propaganda.

I haven’t spoken with him since he "indianed" me twice – first at the dinner I gave for the Presidentiables and Vice Presidentiables at the Tower Club. Noli had told me in Malacañang that he would come, even if President GMA had politely spurned my invitation. The night before the event, he had also assured my partner and coordinator, STARGATE President Babe Romualdez, he was coming.
