A Journalist's Nirvana




By-lined article, banner headline, Sunday edition of the country's premier newspaper.

I've died and gone to heaven.

For months, I've been picking up little rumors about this from hanging out with Filipina domestic workers. Then one of the specialized search engines I use (is that the proper term?) gave a ping! And there it was, docketed with the Southern District Court of New York.

Have a glass of my favorite Riesling wine with me, friends. And thanks to you all; you helped me survive a two-year-running crisis.

The family has known, since you were five years old, that you were great.

Ignore those who simply cannot bear the thought that there is at least one great Filipina.

Here's to you, coz!

If by Lauro Baja manages to get acquitted on these charges, can he be charged with underpaying his maid given that he admitted to the Inquirer that he paid his maid $200 a month and not $100? How very generous of him..

Per the complaint, it was $100 for three months of work.
