Gone to the dogs*

Gone to the dogs*

I was thinking about what I last posted -- about shame (or shamelessness, to be more precise). Here's a shot of a car belonging to Manila's not-so finest. This was taken underneath the LRT along Rizal Ave. in Manila.

For several days, the radio had live coverage of the CHR hearings about the botched hostage incident in Luneta, but I couldn't bear to listen to the stupid things being said. Certainly, if that was the downright horrific experience of foreign tourists, what more the experience of ordinary Filipinos -- who are humiliated, abused, tortured, even killed at the hands of those who are supposed to protect them.


*My apologies to dogs. This photo was taken the day before the Luneta hostage incident.
