NOW IT CAN BE TOLD: Oz The Great and Powerful
By N Mark Castro
Most everyone of you have been intrigued by my decision to suspend my political strategy involvement and have been curious as to the reason for my digital silence as well, especially at a time when burning issues affect the region, including the upcoming presidential elections in Indonesia. Some have even sent me an email demanding that I post on certain issues that affected the Philippines and Indonesia, two of my most entertaining source of socio-political and communications idiocies.
By socio-political and communications idiocies I don’t mean that the countries mentioned have elected and appointed politicians that are idiots.
Just most of them.
And every journalist or writer, or political strategists have asked me of my opinion on those public officials who have been caught lying about their ill-gotten wealth and corrupt practices and large-scale theft from the national treasuries of both countries, I simply reply that they shouldn’t deprive those villages — from which these elected and appointed politicians come — their resident idiots.
And I would go on about my new focus.
But if you thought that this new “baby” I am so thrilled with had something to do with the wonderful story of The Wizard of Oz …
Then allow me to disabuse you of that notion … although certain parallelisms can be inferred.
But, for now, let’s focus instead on the Other Side of Oz and how when I clicked my shoes I suddenly found myself on what could be your modern-day hot air balloon.
No … that’s not me … you’ll have to lower your expectations than that.
This is me.
