Boo Chanco's Is Gawad Kalinga too good to last? in ABS-CBN Interactive:
(edit: the article was moved to ABS-CBN Interactive)
"I guess the story of the leadership crisis is too good to ignore for long. Vic Agustin wrote two columns in the Standard over the past week on the subject and Ces Drilon had a report aired on it last Tuesday evening on ANC. Newsbreak had a story on it too in its website. What I find sad is the impression it leaves that we Pinoys can’t stand a successful venture. Soon enough, crab mentality sets in and the venture becomes too good to last."
The good, the crab, and the ugly, in the Inquirer.net's Viewpoints:
"In the first town development summit held by Gawad Kalinga last weekend, Filipino-American Robert Sanchez, chief executive of a $500-million IT company, told more than 100 governors and mayors that he was part of a group of successful second-generation Filipino-Americans who had banded together to advocate for Gawad Kalinga. Before ommitting themselves and their resources to Gawad kalinga, they instructed their lawyers to research on Gawad Kalinga and perform due diligence on the organization. In his own words, Robert said, "Gawad Kalinga has no corruption, Gawad Kalinga has no arrogance."
Crabs and God’s design, in the Inquirer's Opinion section:
"I’m sure the “breakaway group” headed by Couples for Christ (CfC) founder Frank Padilla would be the first to deny that “crab mentality” is the reason they caused a split in the leadership of CfC and its social development arm Gawad Kalinga. News reports and magazine articles say the conflict was “ideological” in nature, though I won’t ignore talk that it was in part “personal” too."
Anybody else notice the seafood theme? I'll have a Fried Piranha with that crab platter please.
That was a joke people.
Still praying for peace...we'll keep it light until we really know what direction this is all heading into. We still have the much maligned Council Elections to cover...
Just in, the FFL's SEC incorporators, the status of their denied application for incorporation, and...how does one receive tithes without a legitimately incorporated company?
