The Writing on the Wall

In the second week of March 2007, All Manila was abuzz about a most unfortunate incident that involved the “young” scion [ 51 years old ] of one of the city’s most established families, one of its great shipping fortunes.

    How about filing for a class action lawsuit? All of his victims must get together, then have a press conference and file a lawsuit to make his family aware that he is a menace to society. He deserves to stay behind bars. Cocky and arrogant, it’s because his mother is in power. A bunch of garbage who don’t even belong in a stabilize society. The crimes committed to society.

    Fr. Panlillio is one good example, rally behind the good soul and oust the evil

    Something is wrong with that grandson of I*M. He always gets into trouble at Embas*y and always, always… it’s because he thinks someone is flirting with his model girlfriend (name rhymes with Medusa! Nyahahaha….).

    Senor Gonzalez,

    I got your email. Thank you. I replied in kind.

    Part 2-

    Natalie said “R”? Was it Rob*ie? If so, then it’s made Helen M. (a relative) a widow? And he was one of the nicer-looking D*lgados, too.

    Now, I need the details more than ever. OK, I’ll trade details for the latest dirt on… whom do you want?

    Toto et al.,

    I know that F*rt-P*rdo de Tav*ra-M*notoc incident was well-reported on the Inq7 webpage. (And really they should throw that grandson of *rsenic L*cson and Madam* Clueless into the slammer.)

    But I can’t find anything on the D*lgado murder. Toto, even your veritable chatterati colleague, Ma*rice, has not reported anything about it. Which D*lgado was done in? Details, please…or my own well might dry up, too.

    It certainly shook Manila. And it really shook The Family to its very foundations.

    There are as many versions of the story as there are stars in the sky. Only Time can tell…

    Hi Toto.. this news shocked me since I was just at a party with some members of the family ( I have cousins related to the D’s ) in Feb.. But then again, knowing how they really are with money ( so so frugal – as in, kuripot! ) sooner or later, something like this is bound to happen. Why is it that the richer they get the harder it is for some, to part with money? Just asking…. I can never get it kase… coz someday when I get super filthy rich ( when kaya? ), I will share, esp. with relatives who have less ( charity begins at home ) para everybody happy? …. So, who do you think killed R?

    Who do you think is responsible? The angles seem to be conflicting but one can never tell. Sometimes, it’s the people you least expect who will literally (and figuratively) stab you at your back!
