Benjamin’s existential question


Philippine Star reports on the life in jail of former Comelec chair Benjamin Abalos. [HERE]

    A source told The STAR that the former poll chief hardly talks. He would just sit down and read books, magazines and newspapers.

    “He will ask me why am I here? I will just reassure him that everything’s going to be okay.” his wife Cora said.

Reminds me of the old non sequitur:
“Maganda ba?”
“Mabait siya.”

Paano nga ba sasagutin yun tanong ni Mang Ben?
