Philippine Commentary Since Reboot

hese are all the posts of Philippine Commentary since this old blog was resurrected in mid-October, 2005. (It's surprising how much of its previous incarnation as survives in the global caches, sometimes embarrassingly, sometimes satisfyingly). Even as we look forward to the year that is yet to be in 2006, this seems to be a good time for a retrospective listing for the convenience of the Readers and Travelers that come to this Archipelago of Philippine Commentaries. There is plenty new in store this coming year, but suffer the recent past of my humble efforts as preparation...
