02112: News Quickies

So Duterte has announced that he is not running for President and that he might even retire from public office entirely. I'll wait until the deadline for candidates to file candidacy before I formally celebrate.

Today was the first day that the PNP's Highway Patrol Group (HPG) assumed authority over the EDSA traffic situation. There was a big show of force this morning, but I'm not sure what kind of an impact they made. Then again, it has only been one day so we'll just have to wait and see.

It has been a busy Monday, and I'm experimenting with shorter posts since I never seem to have enough time to write.
