Like a thief in the night

The Marcoses just proved how sneaky they could get.  On November 18, 2016, the Supreme Court allowed the body of the late President and dictator Ferdinand Marcos to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.   Earlier today, like a thief in the night (or the thief that they are), they sneaked Marcos’ carcass and finally buried him to where his family and loyalists believed to be his rightful place, among the nation’s heroes.  Why I am not surprised at this?  Maybe I am losing faith in this country or maybe I am simply used to seeing powerful people getting what they want. I should probably stop writing on topics such as this lest Martin Andanar (aka one of Duterte’s apologists) call me a temperamental brat and some people might accuse me of not knowing anything at all since I wasn’t even alive during Martial Law.  Turned out apathy is the best policy when it comes to our nation’s history.   As as I am concerned, dictators should never be considered heroes.
