HAVE BAT WILL STRIKE - Juanito V. Jabat   (The Freeman) - August 9, 2015 - 10:00am

Grace Poe says she has no plan – yet – to run in 2016. She has lately been telling the world "wala pa pong plano." Not thru Chiz Escudero but through a black T-shirt posted on her Instagram.

It says here that Mar Roxas has renewed his VP offer to Grace Poe. Isn't Mar insulting his partymates who are as qualified – even more so–to be VP? And have in fact made it known they're willing to?

Commenting on coffee shop talks that VP Binay would face impeachment should he be able to beat Mar in their rematch, a bystander said: "Binay can't face impeachment because Binay can't win."

VP Binay's so-called TSONA (True State of the Nation Address) was Jojo's chance to explain or correct the charges of corruption against him. But he blew it. Instead has spent hours on what he called the sins of PNoy's admin.

Before I run out of space I would like to acknowledge with thanks the prayer booklets I received from Mr. & Mrs. Pete Santiago of Dumaguete City. The two booklets or pamphlets I have already read, carry inspirational messages. Nice.

"Chinese construction on islands (in the West Philippine Sea) to continue" (PhilSTAR, August 6/15). This despite the Asean, US, and Japan stepping up the pressure on China. Aren't you still convinced that in the Spratlys, what China wants, China gets?

E-mail from reader Joe Panis: "You know what, Sir, dili gyud mosakit ning akong tiyan unsa may mahitabo sa atong politika. Apan mosakit kini kun si Junemar Fajardo dili makaduwa sa Gilas Pilipinas sa FIBA Asia Championship sa China sunod buwan. Unya wa sad kuno si Marc Pingris ug si Kelly Williams.

Joe Panis ended his e-mail message with: "Kun wala si Fajardo ug wa sad si Pingris ug Williams di gyud magsilbi bisan unsaon ta og singgit...Puso, puso Pilipinas!"

Truth to tell, I know of many people who are more concerned about the Gilas Pilipinas performance in the FIBA Championship in China than our coming elections.
