A Paucity of Reasons & an Abundance of Stupidities
by Ron R. Lacson
A month ago, my daughter brought home a book called ‘Stupid is Forever.’ It is authored by Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago. I immediately devoured it. (No, no, no, I did not eat it; it wasn’t survival of the fittest, it was actually an application of the theory of natural selection ). What I meant was that I read the book without stopping; and I finished it in one sitting. It is a good book.
Ok, this article is not intended to advertize Miriam’s book; it’s already selling like hotcakes; it doesn’t need any more promotion. The idea is to refer to the book’s many satires that are intended to seriously consider the wealth of stupidities in the three branches of the government that you hope to trust – LEGISLATIVE (the Senate and the House of Representatives), EXECUTIVE (President, VP, Cabinet) & JUDICIARY (Supreme Court, RTC, MTC, Special Courts), – and the scarcity of reasons on why they continue to annoy and disappoint us.
