GREAT TO RECONNECT with former Ateneo classmates this Memorial Day weekend through a Viber group: Andy and Rio Denoga, Joel Cocjin, Cynthia Mendoza, Nick Cruz, Ric Mateo, Dennis Garcia, Tom Falgui, Raffy Vargas, Leng Apostol, Meong Mendoza, Bobby Montemar, Tony Galvez, Alfred Potenciano and Alex Liu, Jr.--kindred souls all in different professions and parts of the world, brought together by this lockdown and memories of Ateneo days more than four decades ago. And Norm Cabrera wants me to join his Cervini-Eliazo Viber group. Lux in Domino is bright.

Blue (And White) Maspeth, 2015

SINCE THERE WILL BE NO Memorial Day parade in Maspeth this year, I'm going back to this pomp five years ago when NY Dem bigwigs descended on Grand Avenue near Mt. Olivet Cemetery, for a semblance of the normal. From Queens Gazette. Cheers!
