Manolo Quezon is #TheExplainer Newsletter - FVR Omnibus

This and the next two newsletters are part of catching up with the backlog of things that have come out. Thank you for your patience and staying part of this newsletter.
This issue focuses on coverage and my commentaries on the passing of Fidel V. Ramos. My column on his passing reminded me I’ve beet at writing for some time. The story I started with was a story I filed away as an unfinished piece; I think I’ve had that snippet lurking in various hard drives for maybe twenty years. Then, all of a sudden, I finally got to use it.

I'm a columnist for the Philippine Daily Inquirer; an Editor at large at Spot.ph; I write on history, politics and culture; and I write speeches and have worked in political communications; and I used to broadcast (which is where The Explainer comes from); I also set up and maintain the Philippine Diary Project; this is a newsletter to keep readers abreast of what I've written, am writing, and think about what's going on as well as a way to expand topics and conversations on all sorts of issues. Ideally, this will come thrice weekly:
1. Every Monday: Electoral-Merry-Go Round, on the Road to the 2022 Presidential Elections
2. Every Wednesday or Thurday: My column, "The Long View" along with additional material/thoughts on the topic.
3. Passion Project Weekends: reviews and recommendations books, movies, and other things; updates on The Philippine Diary Project and other things I find interesting. If my podcast comes out, this is when I'd promote it.
