Manila’s traffic

THE EAR - The Freeman

TRAFFIC. Business circle leaders having "special dinner" in a plush hotel in Makati were talking about the monstrous traffic in Metro Manila. A Spanish mestizo in the group said without butting an eyelash: "No Tagalog, no Caviteno, no Makateno, no Filipino, could solve Metro Manila's monstrous traffic, so what did PNoy do in the face of hopelessness? Someone answered: "He named the HPG."

SPANISH MESTIZO. "No, no, no, Cuño, El Presidente named a Cebuano to solve Manila's problem – Secretary – to the Cabinet Rene Almendras."

WATCHING. A banana plantation mogul, butted in: "If Rene Almendras would still fail, there's our Mayor Digong Duterte waiting."
