Stories below the fold

Lolo Kiko!

Here, everyone is given a nickname, and that is the one for Pope Francis.

And like Jean Vanier, he is defending those who society wants to get rid of as non productive.

"Although society tends to discard us, the Lord certainly does not," Pope Francis said, as quoted by Vatican Radio.
Pope Francis also explained why the Church needs the elderly to pray for its people.

The pope also urged the young to dismiss today's "throwaway culture" by listening to the older generations.

"Young people listen to their grandparents," the Pope said. 

Kiko is a Filipino version of "Francis"...

why is George Clooney's wife defending our lovely ex president Gloria?

"Atty. Amal is, unfortunately, completely misinformed, and her and her spouse's popularity and glamor are being used for an unscrupulous selfish agenda," lawyer Edre Olalia, secretary general of the National Union of People's Lawyers (NUPL), said in a statement. Ms. Clooney is a noted human rights lawyer. She is also the wife of Hollywood actor George Clooney. "Sadly, she is being fooled by forces out to rewrite history, distort reality, twist roles from perpetrator to victim, and reinvent international human rights law. The UN (United Nations) process is also being mocked and corrupted along the way," the NUPL said.
In a separate statement, Bayan Muna partylist Representative Neri Colmenares said that, while his group recognized Clooney's concern for the human rights in the Philippines, it would be best for her to also make a pitch for the situation of at least 229 cases of extrajudicial killings of activists, media and ordinary people.
the claim she needs to go elsewhere for treatment is a ruse: We have first class medical treatment here...

going to hospitals with newly discovered medical problems is routine for our politicians as a way to stay out of jail until the court gets around to hearing the case, which can take decades...
