    At the end of the day, there’s only so much Ricky Carandang can do. There’s only so much positive scripting and sugarcoating can do. Ricky has the unenviable job of defending an inept and incompetent president in the bar of public opinion. Defending Noynoy is simply defending the indefensible. It’s better for Ricky to return to the private sector instead of wasting the prime of his life and his professional career on a hopeless president. Cheers to Ricky for realizing soon enough that his devotion to Noynoy was an exercise in futility.

    (Anyway, DZMM’s Tonying Taberna did hint at a new incoming Meralco spokesperson when he interviewed Mr. Joe Zaldarriaga on the air on Dec. 03, 2013. The latter did confirm the matter obliquely).
