[dropcap letter=”W”]hile I am all for commemoration, I believe that there’s a fine line that shouldn’t be crossed. Even memorializing noteworthy people can be overdone, especially when 1) You’re renaming things that are perfectly fine on their own, 2) It contributes nothing to the person’s memory, and 3) The thing you’re renaming in their honor stands for everything contrary to what you want that person to be remembered for.
Overkill aside, here are 8 other things that the Aquino Administration can rename and leave well enough alone.
Does “Kris Aquino Southern Expressway” have a better ring to it? Best to check with Sinangag Express to make sure you aren’t infringing on any copyrights.
