The social networks are abuzz once more with news of this or that senator’s “performance” during the hearing on the Pork Barrel Scam earlier today. Pork barrel jokes are even trending on Twitter. Yes, the Senate hearings produced stuff that were comedy gold! I mean, it would really be funny—if not for the fact that through the scam, the culprits stole money from me, and you and every tax-paying Filipino. Money that could have been spent on infrastructure and many other nation-building projects.
