Estrada's new book: Eraption or Corruption?

Here is ousted President Joseph Estrada's New Year's resolution: To write a book on himself.

Could that book be a pocketbook of jokes say "Eraption Volume 2"? Probably not. Taking clues from Inquirer's interview with Erap, mukhang seryoso ang laman nito. Estrada's book will even feature a chapter on exposés, which will keep “some political figures” on their toes.

"The exposés will be supported by official documents and other pertinent papers, according to the ousted leader who was convicted of plunder last year but was immediately pardoned by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo," the Inquirer continued.

Whether or not Erap's PR specialist is thinking bright or doing dull, mukhang may sense nga naman na isama ang chapter tungkol sa mga kurakot na opisyal. As the saying goes: Birds of the same feather flocks together. O di ba?

But the questions are: Kaya ba ni Erap harapin ang libel? House arrest pa nga lang nagrereklamo na siya, paano kung bugbugin siya ng libel at sapilitan na siyang ikulong sa Bilibid?

Second, is he also willing to face charges for hiding the truth and concealing the crime considering that most of the corruption cases he is planning to expose happened prior to, and during, his presidency?

Aber nga, tingnan natin?

Mind Bullet Briefing Paper: Communicating the Philippine Water Crisis as a Defining National Issue for Candidates Running for the 2008 Presidential elections

I. Rationale
Defining moments are very important in capturing the imagination, hearts, minds of the people to genuinely entrust leadership. Through conscious efforts and expected historical milestones, defining moments can be laid out as a story line leading to a positive perception or conclusion. Defining moments establish how the market (electorate) will perceive and decide what to do with the product (politician). Simply put, defining moments in history will determine the market positioning of candidates running for President in 2008.
