What were they thinking?

Two days ago (December 14, 2005), while I was engrossed on my personal problems, a new government was formed in the Philippines headed by former general Fortunato Abat (stories here and here). The former general declared the:
"existence of a revolutionary transition government and the formation of a transition government council to administer the affairs of government"
Yesterday, the most prominent members of this new government were invited for questioning by the police. (stories here and here) Why they were not just arrested is beyond me.

Which leads me to my original question. What were they thinking? Did they really think the people will rise up for a bunch of political has beens?

And the "revolutionaries" are not your ordinary crackpots, these people used to occupy high posts in the Philippine government. No wonder our country is in such a mess. If these are the kind of people we get in government, we are doomed.

Only in da Philippines.

"Random Thoughts"

About half a month ago, a certain nashman wrote a comment on one of my posts. I was curious about this person who came out of the blue so I followed his comment back to his blog. What greeted me was another blog titled "Random Thoughts". It's probably a reflection on the originality of my thoughts that there is at least one other person who named his blog "Random Thoughts". :)

I became curious if there were other blogs named "Random Thoughts" so I searched through google blogsearch. And there were some, and I present them here:
