Ang Bulag at Pilay

Dear Mouse,

I am sorry to know that one soul in the planet is terribly affected by my support to Patricia Evangelista. If I can just send her double strength sleep inducer tylenol, I would UPS a year supply.

She wrote:

Cathcath, people have had enough of your lame reasoning and your unrequited allegiance

You, naman, noong minsan ginawa mo akong bulag, now naman, ginawa mo akong pilay. Baka susunod deaf na.Unrequited allegiance? When I took her side, I did not expect her to acknowledge your what you called blind allegiance. But she is a sweet young lady to write me a thank you letter and entrust an article that had not seen print yet. Yes, I like her for that even if I scold her for too trusting to faceless strangers in the net.

to an erring journalist who committed a collosal blunder

Wow,colossal? Did it erode the reputation of any established journalists and TV bigwigs who believed the mother and daughter.

Was it so big a mistake that it brought down the "honor" of the members of the Senate who were maligned in the article. Was it so big a mistake that our economy is in peril to collapse?

Was it so degrading to the President's Office that they demand for apology?

I did not hear any from Mr.Bunye, but I always heard him apologized for "misinformation" due to misunderstanding.

Change your focus, my dear friend, there are other people who are driving our economy to the edge.

You are barking up at a wrong tree. It is not even a tree, it is just a shrub.

and apologized only after feeling pressure from public outcry, most of which were carried through blogs and emails.

My friend,when you "get burned" once, use potholders next time and be extra cautious not to be burned again.That's why she had to wait for all the dust to settle before she made another step. Will it give you ulcer, if I tell you that she made a good move?

Your blog is about the only one who shamelessly supported her, and all what the public wanted was an apology.

Patricia apologized.I cannot understand what is it that you need. I am sorry that I am more concerned about you than the San Juans. The baggage must be so heavy that you cannot move on.That is why I am giving you attention.Baka kulang niyan. Sometimes the anger towards our fellowmen is not because of what they did but what you have not done.

You should read my previous blog about me walking out of my professor alone to protest his favoritism. I risked my grade and my career almost had a setback when our paths crossed after I graduated.

But that is me, even if I were the only man standing, I would not quit if I believe in my cause.

There is nothing to be shameful about a cause that does not harm people...ow excuse me, I gave you a lot of stress lately. Don't worry, you are not alone, there are more accomplished people who fell from their ivory tower because they like to get my neck. The issue was not as trivial as yours though.

Your comments that you are looking for publicity was equally pathetic so don't blame people for turning sour against you.

No,my dear friend,nobody turned sour against me. We are matured enough not to be sugary sweet though.

I doubled my readership and you could have also increased your traffic if you do not remain anonymous, then I can always redirect the traffic to your site.

If you want the public to continue to respect you and visit your blog to listen to what you have to say, you should portray respectablility in everything you say.

Thank you for the advice. Much as appreciate those who read my blog, I cannot and am not writing to please anybody. I also do not need people to say good morning to me everyday. Sometimes, their silence means respect for my opinion if they differ from mine or concurrence if we are in the same page.

So my friend, I am more concerned about your health. Malakas magpatanda ang galit. Do not wait for me to agree with you. Pagputi ng uwak.

ayan pati tuloy si ate jet naiinis na. hehe!

tindi ng galit nyan sayo ms cathy ah? sya rin ba yung nagsabi na shut up ka na daw? bomalabs sya masyado.

natuwa pa ako sa kanya kung yung kritisismo nya kay pat ay ibaling nya doon sa mga nag massacre sa hacienda luisita!

Hey Cathcath! Sabi ng isang blogger dun sa blog ni flyingroc, "Cathcath is langaw in all this (so dapat flyfly?). please do not make her happy by including her in the discussion of this issue. she is an intellectual wannabe who needs to not just brush up, but go to the basics of, english. she also needs to develop subtle wit because people seem to not get her forays into sarcasm."

You know what? I agree! Stop making Patpat Ebak-helista a spoiled brat. Pagsabihan mo yang idol mo na nagkamali sya sa Faye story, and it's time to move on and excel next time na may mga pagkakataon. No need to explain why she had it all wrong sa Faye issue. Pag nagsorry ka, don't blame anybody. Hay mga langaw nga naman...

to tell you the truth,anonymous, not all can appreciate my wisdom and humor. it takes wisdom to appreciate one. it seems that your group in the comment box of one blogger does not have the W. It's just all noise.

So sorry for you. Read my blog and learn how to insult people without having to use the word shut up, ow did I do that?

Puwedeng mag-comment as anonymous para kunwari marami kang readers? Palagay ko kilala ko kung sino yung nagsusulat as anonymous. Kulang siya sa pansin. At walang bayag. Character assasination na ang ginagawa kasi talagang wala siyang laban eh. Nagsisimba ba siya kamo? Eh, baka di niya naririnig yung pari na nagsesermon ng forgive..be humble...masermunan nga ng "ipukol ang unang bato sa inyo man na hindi nagkasala".

Pangalawa, eto para kay Patricia..mabuhay ka Hija..maraming hindi nakakalunok na sila taga-states at ikaw na taga Pilipinas lang pala ang tatalo sa ilang bansa nga kamo? 37 ba yon at sa London pa 'ika mo? Matindi nga yon. Isang estudyante galing sa third world country tumalo ng mga taga-ibang bansa..kaya naman pala hindi malunok eh.

Pangatlo..ang nanay o tatay ng mga batang yan, kundi nag-aral sa Pilipinas, di makakarating sa States..truth or consequence..

Ahahay, baka may langaw na namang magsusumbong doon kay..aya aywa ko nga banggitin, baka dumami pa readers niya.

Dear Cat,

Gusto ko sanang malaman kung kailan ba babalik si Patricia Evangelista sa London para kunin yung award niya kay Prince Philip? Email me na lang kung gusto mong magreply.

this is sad, is it necessary to pick the wound rather than letting it be to heal?

Bashing and attacking serves no purpose, it doesn't even correct the mistake or fix whatever mess came out of it (and I really do not see any major aftermath or consequences to the error) and I am sure ALL of us at one point in time has made a mistake. It is part of learning, if you haven't made a mistake, it means you never took risks and you never had the initiative to learn on your own, because if one did, life as a teacher: you learn from mistakes

One can ONLY learn from a mistake if she ACCEPTS the mistake. Patrica did ultimately, long after BOLM and Cathy San Juan apologized, after pressure from the world at large. That's fine. She did what she was supposed to do - concede albeit late.

The problem is with some people who say that PE really did nothing wrong by because she defended the downtrodden. What ? Are you stupid? Faye San Juan was a first class liar. What's so honorable about being DELUDED? Why justify the article? Why offer an exit pass for PE? She made a mistake period.

This is where the argument is right now. It's not PE anymore but some die hard PE fans who wouldn't let PE get the black eye, cannot accept the fact that Patricia erred big time and consequently they look like they're defending the stupid hoax to the max which is damn irritating. FULL STOP. END OF STORY.
