Quick notes under the weather

THE ONSET of the wet season, bringing hot mornings until midday and rains in the afternoon, took a terrible toll on me and most of the kids. Poor me: young as they are, recovery for them came quite quickly while some stuff finally caught up with their old fogey.

Enough said.

1. The saga of Naga's persecuted policemen continues. The Inquirer carried their story yesterday, which is quite ironic once you posits them in this farewell message of Joachim von Amsberg, World Bank's outgoing country manager, before the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP).

This is how the country's true islands of good governance is being rewarded -- being singled out by a regional police leadership identified with Rep. Luis Villafuerte and his son Bong. No wonder jueteng is back with a vengeance.

2. Today is the final session of the 8th Sangguniang Panlungsod. One of the term-limited councilors who will bid the city government goodbye is Atty. Mila Raquid-Arroyo, chair of the Committee on Education, ex-oficio member of the Naga City School Board and a trustee of the Ateneo de Naga University, among others.

Miles will be a big loss to the city, but a big gain for the civil society, from which she came before running for the council in 1998. She will be greatly missed.

3. In reading through this alternative Harry Potter series ender, I was pleasantly introduced to the world of fan fiction, defined by Wikipedia as

a broadly-defined term for fiction about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creators. Fan fiction usually describes works which are uncommissioned by the owner of the work, and usually (but not always) works which are not professionally published.
But what if the fanfic, like Melindaleo's The Seventh Horcrux, erroneously labeled the fake Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, provides a better ending than the original?

4. How much is Manolo's link worth? As much as 50% of one's regular visitors, based on my recent experience. Over the last few days I did not write a post, yet my Sitemeter stats went up by as much.
