 About the Resource:

In Ninoy Aquino’s exposes — ominous indeed and prophetic now sound — wathere an exact, as it turned out, prognosis of what Mr. Marcos was up to. Unfortunately, such philippics were chiefly enjoyed for their titillation. The danger signals Ninoy defined excited thrills rather than concern and he was cheered being so bold an oppositionist, so shrewd a fiscalizer, when he should have disquieted aa stormy petrel voicing omens of impending ill. After the blow had fallen on the nation, Ninoy’s words would be recalled with a pang — no ,longer as delicious scandal mongering but aan oracle’s auguries that, alas, went unheeded. The tragedy was thathe people failed to realize that his onslaughts were directed against a very imminent and actual danger. Thrilling entertainment waall they sain the series of exposes he made, exposes that should have affrighted as omens of the petrel.
