Ricky: A flashflood hero; Adam is a permanent man

A certain John Lennon (surname withheld) stole one sack of dried bean seeds at the Laoag City supermarket.

His parents named him after the world-famous Beatles vocalist-guitarist of the 1970s.

When baptized as a kid, they probably wished him to become a super singer too someday and not to become a clever thief in the supermarket when grownup.

Sad to say, his namesake famous singer John Lennon was gunned down in New York in later years.

In the Philippines, thieves and drug traders get shot if they resist police arrest or if they combat with the lawmen.

A boy, 3, of Badoc, Ilocos Norte spewed after consuming a lollipop candy contained in a condom plastic wrapper.

His mom may be familiar with condom wrapper but not the innocent child who usually enjoyed sweet candies.

The incident was perhaps the handiwork of a disgruntled employee in the candy manufacturing company.

Common sense, no company would ever self-destruct its business by tolerating such nasty thing in its products.

He was gone but Ricky Manglal-lan’s heroic deed was cited posthumously by the legislators of Ilocos Norte through a Resolution of Commendation.
He drowned in the flash flood while helping in the rescue operation of affected families in his Brgy. Salet-Bulangon, Laoag City at the height of Typhoon Ineng.

Ricky, a declared hero, perished at a young age leaving two kids, aged 5 years old and 3 months old.

President Duterte fired Bureau of Corrections chief Nicanor Faeldon in the nick of time in connection with the illegal release of convicts with heinous crimes.

Firefighters may tease him “welcome to the club Nick Firedon.”

Senate President Vicente Sotto III: “If you are a man, you will never be a woman, no matter what you do, you cannot reproduce, you cannot give birth, you do not have ovaries.”

Coz Adam is a permanent man while Eve is a permanent woman who is created by God from Adam’s rib, the Bible story says.#
