Fabella (Business World Online) March 13, 2016   The Philippine public has been treated to many erudite and well-reasoned treatises on how the Supreme Court (SC) should decide on Senator Grace Poe’s disqualification case.

What choice will we have?

March 7, 2016

Like It Is by Peter Wallace (Philippine Daily Inquirer) March 3, 2016   We are moving into an uncertain future.

Damn the torpedoes

February 22, 2016

Like It Is by Peter Wallace (Philippine Daily Inquirer) February 18, 2016   There are some lessons to be learned from this administration if the next one would like to do better.

October 15, 2015

Like It Is by Peter Wallace (Philippine Daily Inquirer) October 15, 2015   I’d like to thank the many who appreciated and supported my decision to become a Filipino.
