Letters: Baguio traffic and the ASEAN summit

Letters: It is about murder for whatever reason

That was quite a mouthful you unleashed on media Thursday (June 2) night. We do appreciate your reminder that, yes, we journalists are not a uniformly lily-white breed, in fact none of us are, although we would not go so far as to consider ourselves in the same line of work as publicists for theirs is a totally different field as you yourself pointed out.
