San Juanico Bridge [formerly the Marcosias Bridge] connecting Leyte and Samar is my favorite bridge in the Philippines. It used to be the longest bridge in Asia. (I don’t know now.) It was the project of then First Lady Imelda Marcos, a Leytena.

They have to have it inspected though because they say that it’s sinking and shaking.

What is the foundation of my calculation[that Filipinos will become cannibals]? Well, the population is doubling every 25 years and the volcanoes aren’t spewing enough lava to add any more space. Each woman, on average, is hatching 3.27 new babies, relentlessly creating small mouths that become big appetites. And not enough people are dying.
