It’s funny how a single issue, like the Pacquiao-Marquez fight, took hold of the Philippines. Everyone suddenly had an interest in statistics and became experts. Now, that’s a pretty rosy picture for this country. We can be experts if we wanted to.

While we were busy with Pacquiao and Marquez, the poor continued to be poor.
Who gives a damn about those issues anyway? Certainly not us. We’re just well-trained consumers.
