Tomorrow Joe Am will apply his acerbic Western spyglass to the free-wheeling and high-risk Filipino lifestyle in the cleverly but bluntly titled article "Happy Go Dead" Filipinos.
If you wish to pick up an old blog, here's one I recommend "Rain and Peace" from January. It's friendly perspective will help balance out tomorrow's acidic view. Rather like milk on an ulcer.

Let me also take the opportunity to thank those of you who, intentionally or inadvertently, have given Joe Am's writings greater visibility in the circles of Filipino discussion and debate. I find "Joe America" in blog rolls a lot these days, know it is referenced now and then on Facebook, and see references and links on other sites. Readership is up four-fold from just a couple of months ago. Comment is rich and instructional. It is a lot more substantive all around.
