Manila Standard: The future is nowhere

yesterday, i found a local newspaper that headlined reaction to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith's document, Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Collaboration of Men and Women in the Church and in the World which the Manila Standard provocatively entitled Vatican Denounces Feminism.

i wanted to react to this yet another example of defecient understanding of things catholic which every journalist seem to be good at. i would have started by citing how a catholic news source covered the news and pointing out the silly conclusions the filipino press made. but then i was too busy to write lengthily on the matter, especially since my many errands and new found responsibilities provide me with no time to blog as heavily as i would like to.

anyway, i decided to give it a try if i could find time, and so i did. i first tried to check the whole article at the manila standard's online archives. but my initial attempts to find the article went unrewarded since i couldn't find it.

and then my eyes caught something peculiar. i discovered that if you try to view the standard's archives for august 2004, you will actually find yourself looking the pages from august 2003.

so much for their "the future is ours" slogan.

update (4 august 2004): they fixed the faulty link.... aawww...
