Our silly Senators, again

‘Di ko talaga maiintidihan ang pinagiinitan sa Senado sa ngayon tungkol sa “Kulô” ng art exhibit na kinatitigilan man lang sa Cultural Centre of the Philippines (CCP).  Ito ang pinagmumunuan ng ilang mga art students na galing sa University of Santo Tomas (UST); itinakda na tatakbo ito mula June 17 hanggang August 21; pero pinilitang ipabasura itong exhibit dahil sa mga pinagkalat na mga larawan na ang rebulto at imahen ni Hesus ay “pinagbaboy” ayun sa ila’t ilan.
