Fair is fair!

There are three sides of the truth: your truth, my truth and the truth. I have blogged about the golf incident but that was based on one side of the story. The Valley Golf club had already come out with its investigation and has given penalties to what it thinks were at fault. The verdict can be read here. Since the parties are both unknown to me and that I have nothing to gain from taking sides, as I am not wont to take sides on any story anyway, I am reproducing the other side of the story for your perusal. You can read it here

After reading the mayor's side, my reaction was, "Ah, ok..." But when I read this part:
Blocking is way to the locker room, Hussein replied, “Hindi ka pa ba umaalis? Sumusobra ka na”, the young Bino Lorenzo went in the middle saying, “Huwag po, fourteen years old lang ako”, and yet having his fist ready to give him a punch.

Dito na ako nagtaka. Malabo ata yun. I think the boy was already pleading for the beating (of his dad and himself) to stop. Pero hindi pa rin sila tinitigilang bugbugin kaya natural lumalaban pa rin yung bata.

Then, I read the daughter's blog entry about that day in

The Pangandaman's story has a lot of holes. Making themselves sound like angels... Yeah, RIGHT!

The problem with this case is that the offending party will certainly resort to delaying tactics, making the case drag on way beyond the people's normal attention span. Once they reach that point, they will force the other party to either drop the charges or go for an amicable settlement.

In the end, walang makukulong na naman. :(

Hehe, the whole thing reminds me of this story we had to read in a Humanities class back in college. It's called In a Grove by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, where a single incident was told from the perspectives of the different people involved. It was interesting, as is this Valley Golf incident.

I remember reading somewhere that our perception of an emotional event is strongly affected by our emotions at that moment (duh), pero to the point that if you try to remember it after some time (like years) have passed, you'll have a totally different view of things. Like there was this teacher who made his students write about what they were feeling right after it was announced that JFK had been assasinated (or something, I can't really remember which major event was involved), and then he had them read their work like 10 years later, and most of them went, "I didn't write that."

Here's a link to In the Grove pala, in case you're interested (or have time) to read it. :)

miki I think I should do that. Read again what I've written ten years ago. I wonder what would have changed by then. My ideals? Maybe my writing style which hopefully would be a lot better.

Thanks for the link on the story.

Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
