P-Noy's Entourage

President Noynoy Aquino of the Philippines will bring 57 men and women with him for his seven-day trip to the United States.  This junket will cost 25 million pesos or more than $500,000. 

The Queen of England, Elizabeth II, travels with an entourage of 40-70, depending on the visit's duration. 

Presidents of the Philippines, I think, should only be allowed to leave the country if they've solved pressing problems  -- as in, solve garbage collection problem, you get one trip;   solve illegal/legal logging = one trip;  solve water crisis = one trip;  solve flooding = one trip... 

No problem solved, no trip as everybody just looks foolish, begging for help before any effort is made.
