AFTER spending more than a decade as an information officer at the Philippine embassy in London, while experiencing first hand the Filipino diaspora, Edgar Maranan is back in the literary limelight in his homeland to do what he does best -- writing with flair and passion.

Now a full-time freelance writer and active member of the Baguio Writers Group, Maranan was also recently commissioned by Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP)'s Tanghalang Pilipino, to write a full length rock-musical play EJ: Ang Pinagdaanang Buhay nina Evelio Javier at Edgar Jopson interweaving the lives of two popular martyrs of the resistance movement against the Marcos dictatorship.

After Gloria Arroyo goes, Maranan may also write about her.

Analyze the intention of this woman. She posts an article about Maranan and the books he's planning to write but where does her ideas lead to? Without telling us what implications the works of Maranan are going to be she connects it illogically to Arroyo. Intellectual dishonesty? Jane, you're really full of it.

She probably doesn't even know who Javier and Jopson are.

I'd say she is the inspiration behind Gloria Kawatan and all his/her alter egos. All the threads started by Jane Abao here are all negative issues against the government and GMA. I am not a fan of GMA but as a true-blooded Filipino, I resent all those negative blogs about my country and my nationality.

There are many issues that should be discussed openly and rationally about the Arroyo administration but it does a disservice to equivocally assume Arroyo is the sole arbiter of corruption and poor economic advancement in the country.

Abao would be far better served if she attacked all of the Filipino government with the same zeal she directs toward Arroyo and her administration/political machine. Because of the one-minded editorial composition she chooses, the number of people brought into the debate is minimal, especially in the context of those willing to engage in truly honest and intellectual discussions on the subjects at hand. As a facilitator, Abao is doing very poorly in her leadership role here. Things would be greatly helped if there was an editor who was more active in a balanced and intellectual inquisitive manner.

Jane, this is not an attack on you, as much as, it is constructive criticism of your editorial postings, which constantly falls on your deaf ears.

My father composed the song after Benigno Aquino was assassinated. During the protester against dictator Ferdinand Marcos. But very few Filipinos remember those days. The song my father did composed was sung mostly by famous singers in the Philippines. Who is using their sing talent to help Filipinos to open their eyes & united against dictators. No one will ever remember my father bt at least the Filipinos some how learn something during Marcos regime. Not to make another mistake nor to put another corrupt & dictator president.
