February 16th
On this date in…

0600: Pope Gregory the Great decrees saying “God bless You” is the correct response to a sneeze. Pharmaceutical firms oppose the decree and insist that the correct response should be “Sa panahong ito, bawal magkasakit.”

0923: Islamic historian Abu Dja’far Mohammed Djarir al-Tabari dies at 83. His family wanted to inscribe an epitaph on his tombstone or plaque but the space was just enough for his name.

1834: The inventor of the life boat, Lionel Lukin dies. He drowned.

1888: From Hong Kong, Jose Rizal writes a letter to his good friend Ferdinand Blumentritt citing the circumstances and reasons for leaving the Philippines. Rizal says he is “a victim of a conspiracy of whispers between the government and the stooge in the Department of Justice.” He insists “flight is not an indication of guilt” and vows to return to the country when a new leader is sworn in.

They were warmly welcomed by the residents of the island who actually prepared a “fiesta” for the visitors. Helping them out with the preparation was Kristie Kenney.

1945: Venezuela declares war on Germany… just minutes after Miss Germany won the Miss Universe title edging out first runner-up Miss Venezuela.

1959: Fidel Castro names himself Cuba’s premier after overthrowing President Fulgencio Batista. The ousted president fled Havana and pursued a career in wrestling, a legacy he would pass on to his grandchildren.

1986: The National Assembly declares Ferdinand Marcos as the winner of the February 7 snap presidential elections. Seconds after the declaration, Kris Aquino denounced the National Assembly on Twitter and said, “If it’s wrong to care about my mother and practice my constitutional right to free speech and my freedom to contest the vote, then jail me and let’s go back to the dark days of Martial Law!”

2007: Britney Spears creates a stir when she shaves her head. A few days later, the public would shift its interest to photos of Britney’s shaved vajayjay that circulated online.

This 17th day of February, 2010. NOYNOY is running scared at this stage of campaign since Villar is catching up. Krissy advised Noy to be more showbusiness-like and show emotions…. Kaya Noy:1) looks bored sa last Presidential forum and insisted on 1-1 debate with Villar 2) accused the moderator of bias in favor of Villar… proof of Krissy’s hand in marketing; she is not the “Queen of Showbusiness” for nothing
