no way we can stay productive in the office when mayhem is whirling all around us. as you all probably know by now, an explosion ripped through the glorietta 2 portion of the glorietta mall (facing the big parking bldg.) at around 1:30 pm today, and as of 4 pm, 5 are confirmed dead and more than 50 injured as a result.

the police don't want to say if a bomb did this. heck, just looking at the damage, can one really believe the initial police claim that an LPG canister was the cause of this explosion? even if they don't find the evidence they're looking for (traces of the explosive material, the triggering device, etc.), any rational person can safely conclude that this thing was premeditated.

so to whoever did this: i don't know what your plans were in doing this, but if public sympathy to whatever cause it is that you espouse, this is the dumbest way to go about it. if it's to shame the present administration or to send some kind of warning against it, you certainly won't get people on your side. i, for one, do not like this president we have right now, and with all the controversy surrounding her and her people right now with the ZTE broadband deal and the pay-offs to local government execs, i will only be too glad to see her out of malacaņang.

but it should be done by the book. as it is, this bombing incident only angers people against the perpetrators. and if it's found out that anti-administration elements are behind this (leftist, rightist, centrist, whatever), then good luck to getting enough critical mass for your cause. you wanna rouse people up from their stupor because they seem to be inured to all these controversies? dig up more evidence, get more info out to the people, as joey de venecia, sec. neri, and gov. panlilio did. organize forums and discussions that will enlighten more and more people. that should get enough people riled up to move that critical mass you need.

but a bomb? duh, think again. looks like we just shot ourselves in the foot, once more.
