The Pause That Refreshes

No new blog today. We are turning the page to August, and I’ll give you a chance to catch up on July reads.

Tomorrow Joe Am will apply his acerbic Western spyglass to the free-wheeling and high-risk Filipino lifestyle in the cleverly but bluntly titled article “Happy Go Dead” Filipinos.
If you wish to pick up an old blog, here’s one I recommend “Rain and Peace” from January. It’s friendly perspective will help balance out tomorrow’s acidic view. Rather like milk on an ulcer.
Egypt: “I TOLD you we should have looked for a Jeepney!”
Let me also take the opportunity to thank those of you who, intentionally or inadvertently, have given Joe Am’s writings greater visibility in the circles of Filipino discussion and debate. I find “Joe America” in blog rolls a lot these days, know it is referenced now and then on Facebook, and see references and links on other sites. Readership is up four-fold from just a couple of months ago. Comment is rich and instructional. It is a lot more substantive all around.
