Sound Snipings

BY Jimmy Cabato

Today’s piece could very well turn out a lot briefer. Writing time 8.24 am, and by about 9 I have to start readying to join up with the Gan family, headed by friend Monggueh to formally ask the hand in marriage of his son Lenin. On the bride-to-be’s side, all I know so far is they are of the Tan Usman family of Sta. Maria, with origin in Jolo, Sulu.

Lenin is the Gan son from whom the Lenin chain of varied enterprises is named after.

More on this on our next issue.

Is this a propaganda tool, truth or simply a bad joke. And this is one thing, I hope to find out soonest.

Certain quarters have been strewing around stories of a possible withdrawal of Cong. Celso Lobregat from the mayoralty race.  As I have been saying, that is not in the vocabulary of Lobregat. But by the tenor being espoused by some, if true, there just could be a slight propensity for credence.

Reason of reasons – Lobregat is allegedly faring poorly in a self-commissioned survey.

Up until now, unless I hear the announcement direct from Celso’s lips, I do not believe the fed rumor.

A propaganda tool, truth or simply a bad joke? To me, it is not true. A propaganda tool or a bad joke is all that it is.

Justifications. It is said to be a self-commissioned survey. Then only he and the commissioned evaluator know. And both, definitely are expected to keep the results to themselves, especially so that the results are supposedly negative to client.

I rest my case.

Patience is paying off for acknowledged servant leader Monsi del Cruz. Having declared his congressional bid as early as of February this year, and silently being in motion,he is said to have formed his campaign network. On Friday, he had just snatched another feat. He has been adopted congressional bet of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), the second biggest political party in the country.

At this time, except for one council bet in the person of Calarian Barangay Captain Elking Elmaga, he is alone in the NPC, now clearly behind the candidacy of Sen. Grace Poe.

Things as they are, would you think the NPC will anoint any of the mayoralty bets in Zamboanga? Me, I doubt, ’cause all mayoralty bets would be having their own congressional candidate.

It may happen only if one or the other will adopt Mons as his o hersi, which, to me, is remote.

Having been informed that the bombing incident yesterday was pre-meditated and known to the bus company owners as early as the 12th of this month, I would have wanted to touch on it today, for it could have been prevented. But time it’s 9 am. Time is up. Tomorrow, I will. See you
