\”Which brings me now to reminding all about the dangers of pending House Bill (HB) 3305, and known in the Senate as Senate Bill (SB) 2464: “An Act Prohibiting and Penalizing the Production, Printing, Publication, Importation, Sale, Distribution and Exhibition of Obscene and Pornographic Materials, and the Exhibition of Live Sexual Acts, Amending for the Purpose Article 201 of the Revised Penal Code, as Amended.”

I saw Tarlac Rep. Nikki Prieto Teodoro and lawyer Eric Mallonga of the MTRCB on cable TV the other day, lauding the bill and supporting its passage into law, failing to see that while it purports to “protect women and children from the pernicious effects of pornography,” it more dangerously seeks to strangle all forms of creativity with the operative phrase “regardless of the motive.”\”

    Kung nasa Pilipinas ang Sistine Chapel, malamang pinatibag na nila.

    Malapit na kasi ang eleksiyon. Panahon na ng bidahan ng mga pulitiko.
