One of Jarius Bondoc’s pieces from his column on The Philippine Star has been making the rounds on the internet today. Entitled “The Breakdown of the Philippines”, the opinion piece paints a picture of the sad, sorry state of the nation.
Government no longer is working. Services have broken down. Neglected by the irresponsible political class, Filipinos are demoralized.
Most visibly collapsed is transportation. Metro Manila’s main commuter railway is so rundown it fields only eight three-coach trains during rush hour instead of the contracted 20. Yet the transport secretary continues since 2012 to pay the maintenance contractors, his political party mates, P67 million a month for non-work.

I’ve been working on some websites earlier this week, and there were a couple of occasions when I installed a new plugin, or tried out this new theme, and my posts were returning with a 404 error.
My blog’s home page is OK, but when you click on links to posts or pages, you consistently come back with said 404 Not Found error.
