Is Bicol all set to vote Noynoy?
DEMAND AND SUPPLY By Boo Chanco
LEGASPI, Philippines – Bicol went for a favorite son, the late Sen. Raul Roco, in the last two elections. But Albay by itself went for Ate Glue in the last presidential election, thanks to the work of Gov. Joey Salceda. This time around, with Joey’s turnaround from the Lakas candidate to Noynoy, will Albay follow him again and vote for his choice?
What is going for Noynoy in Bicol is the support of politicians who are known to be not only decent but of the type that the country needs badly in terms of genuine commitment to the people. Working for Noynoy in Camarines Sur is the Magsaysay Award winning Naga City Mayor Jesse Robredo. In Albay, Gov. Joey Salceda has just thrown his support to Noynoy. In Sorsogon, Sen. Chiz Escudero is committed to make Noynoy win in his bailiwick.

GMA manicurist now in Pag-IBIG board?
GOTCHA By Jarius Bondoc
I have to ask these questions in public because no one at the Pag-IBIG Fund cares to answer quiet inquiries:
Who’s Anita Carpon? Is it true that she’s Gloria Arroyo’s manicurist? Are murmurs correct that Arroyo has appointed her to the board of trustees of Pag-IBIG Fund, which all of us employees own?
While we’re at it, these queries too:
Was Carpon with the President in America and Spain, and so was unable to join last week’s oath taking of new trustees? What are her “other” credentials to deserve monthly per diem of P130,000? Will she have a two-year term like other trustees?
