Mukhang patay na ang isyu ng National Artist Scandal sa kamalayan ng mga Filipino.

Bakit? Kasi natabunan nang natabunan ng mga sari-saring kwento ang isyu. Tinabunan ng

  1.  Bagyong Ondoy
  2. CNN Hero Efren Peñaflorida
  3. Firepower: Manny Pacquiao vs Miguel Cotto
  4. Death of Democracy Icon Corazon Aquino
  5. Launching ng Star Struck 5 (Joke lang)
  6. Ampatuan Massacre

There’s a lot more, i guess… But these were the newsmakers of mid ’till late 2009.

I have checked the blogs of Dr. Jose Dalisay, Director of the UP Institute of Creative Writing and National Artist for Literature Bienvenido Lumbera.  The last updates about the issue were posted probably around September.

So does that make Magno “Carlo” Caparas, Cecille Guidote-Alvarez and the five others National Artists?

Sad, sad, sad…

This scandal will join the other scams into blissful oblivion, leaving all behind this scam, along with other perpetrators of various crimes freely roaming this forsaken land.
