Philippine Star's Pre-Valentine Special!


I love the Philippine Star...

... Especially how the front page on their February 13, 2010 issue looks like!

Aside from having the delight to browse the columns of Quinito Henson, Bill Velasco, Ricky Lo, the ex-pat files guy, and Butch Francisco (his takes on the do and don’ts on investigative journalism, Marlene Aguilar’s pre-Jason Ivler alleged killing spree, and TV during the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s were well-researched and well-written), I also get a look on how the Beerkada strips (in terms of favourite strip, it’s a tossup between Pugad Baboy and Beerkada), Dilbert, and Andy Capp plays out.

Whoever agreed with that front page should be commended. While censorship is getting manhandled in the silliest sense by digital flicks and other avenues of communication arts, this was inspired by real and significant circumstances. It is also seasonal, meaning it didn’t lay waste the season where “flower-picking” is at its max!

I like how serious stuffs lighten things up once in a while.

Game over.
