Ive been closely following the kidnapping case of Journalist Ces Drilon and her camera man. Her ten day capitivity has been such ordeal Im sure she and her companions will never forget for the rest of their lives. But as I read the stories, I realized that such unfornate event has been a platform for underlying events. Sure, Im very happy and really relieved that Ces and company survived but the angle involving the Mayor (one of the negotiators) in the kidnapping is again another heavy blow for our political scene.
Another is the over exposure of Senator Loren Legarda. Yeah, I know that she was a key element in the negotiations. But, let’s face it. Her good intentions will be very much interpreted as a good political move for the coming elections. No need for advertisements for her, I suppose.
