If This Was A Story...

If this was a story, then it's a story we've read before. Perhaps in different variations, with different characters or settings, but we know what the next options are, what could follow, what the fall-out could or couldn't be.

In either constructing or reading a story, some of the things one should be conscious of are the consequences of certain actions, the motives of all the players, and the choices that are or aren't open to them that allow the story to unfold.

With what was reported at the Philippine Senate yesterday still burning our ears, I think it's easy for any of us to guess the different scenarios that could follow. After all, it's a story we've read before. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Wherever you are, it's always good advice to be careful. Be safe this weekend, everybody. And beyond then, too.

Personally I'm getting a bit tired of the "whistle blower at the Senate" angle. I'm hoping that the next expose can happen in one of the other branches of government, say in the middle of a Supreme Court oral argumentation, or a Cabinet Meeting.

Maybe we'll see more diversity once the writer's strike is over ^_^
