JPE and Titong Mendoza and other noted constitutionalists probably were squirming in their seats while haranguing the Chair of the Constitutional Amandments etc who appears to be imbibing what the erstwhile legal luminaries were pumping in the microbrain of an action star.
A member of the committee, a certain Jinggoy Estrada, appeared from nowhere and dish out a knowing smile at JPE as the latter monopolized the discussion.
It was an eerie committee hearing. Its members are dumb, as we found, listeners. Gone are the days when this committee is peopled by no less than a Tañada, a Recto, a Tolentino (not Francis), a Salonga, a Pelaez and a Drilon.
