>Noynoy Aquino graces the cover of Time magazine this month. What does it take to get on that magazine’s cover?

It took a simple housewife to overthrow a dictator to get on the cover of Time magazine in the 80s.

It took a provincial man to win 6 world titles in boxing to get on the cover of Time magazine a few months ago.

Phew. I thought I had to wait for another dictator to come along and overthrow him (or her). And now I don’t need to take up boxing, either. I don’t really need to do much. Just have parents who are heroes. πŸ™‚

Manny Pangilinan is also in the news for tendering his irrevocable resignation from the Ateneo board.

This follows his commencement speech fiasco where it was found out he plagiarized portions of it from other popular speeches. He offered to resign, but Ateneo rejected it.

I think it was right for MVP to resign. I also think it was wrong for Ateneo not to fire him. So is it ok to cheat in THE Ateneo now? As long as when you are found out, you apologize?

Manny Villar is leading in the new survey released.

And Gibo was offered a position by Noynoy in his Cabinet.

Well, that’s if Noynoy wins. If not, the only cabinet Gibo will end up in is the one with all Noynoy’s dirty secrets πŸ™‚

And the biggest news so far is…. Aida got her first haircut! She is wonderful πŸ™‚
