postscript to the typo error on that abs-cbnnews.com article that had a typo error. we copied and pasted an article from abs-cbnnews.com re mass held in NY for tita cory. we did not edit it, we just emailed it to all the members of the group (Cory Aquino – Request For Prayers).
a member of the group called our attention to it. we apologized for the error and explained why the “typo error” was there.
we got 2 interesting replies who are members of the group. their reply essentially contain the same idea and we are posting it here.
this is the typo error, underscored:
“Filipinos in New York are rallying behind former President Arroyo in prayers as she battles colon cancer.”
Perhaps your typo error can be a prophecy, that she too will be called “Former president soon.
“former president arroyo” – it might just be an intention after all. Given that it is typo error it sent a wave of hope for the current state of things in the country. No offense if you are supporter of the president but for us who wish for a better leadership, it is probably a good sign if she really left her office.
we had sent an email to abs-cbnnews.com about it but the error is still uncorrected as of this writing, july 25, 2009, 6:38 pm manila time: http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/pinoy-migration/07/24/09/ny-pinoys-hold-healing-mass-cory
Only Aquino family can issue statements on Cory’s condition
07/24/2009 | 04:16 PM
The Aquino family on Friday requested the public to ignore rumors circulating about ailing former president Corazon Aquino’s health amid false text messages saying the People Power icon has passed away.
“The Aquino family appreciates expressions of support form the public, but would like to request that only announcement from the five children and grandsons be given credence by the public and the media,” said the family statement read to reporters by Dr. Eric Nubla, head of patient relations at the Makati Medical Center where Mrs. Aquino has been staying since June 23.
“Any statement will come from them. Let’s respect what they (said). The fact that we’re doing a statement like this says a lot,” said Nubla.
Text messages falsely saying Mrs. Aquino has passed away made the rounds early Friday, with former Supreme Court justice Adolf Azcuna announcing the content of the message during a Mass for Mrs. Aquino.
Cory Aquino calls her 5 kids to bedside

MANILA, Philippines—The ailing Corazon Aquino called all her five children to her bedside on Tuesday night, according to her youngest daughter.
“Last night, we were all here [at Makati Medical Center]. I called all my siblings after my mom asked for all of us to be together,” TV host and actress Kris Aquino said Wednesday in a text message to the Inquirer.
Aquino, 76, was diagnosed with colon cancer early in 2008 and has been confined at the hospital since June for loss of appetite.
Her other children are Ma. Elena “Ballsy” Cruz, Victoria Elisa “Viel” Dee, Aurora Corazon “Pinky” Abellada and Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
The former President remains in stable condition, her spokesperson Deedee Siytangco told reporters after the third of five healing Masses was celebrated Wednesday at Manila City Hall.
“As far as I know, she’s stable [and] her vital signs are okay. But her appetite has not improved,” said Siytangco, who urged the public to ignore nasty rumors about Aquino’s condition.
Siytangco said the Aquino family had promised to update her.
“They promised to call if anything changes,” she said. “I know the public needs to know, but if there are rumors—I know there are—just ignore them. You [will hear updates] from us.”
