THANK YOU Petron, for putting the Philippines on the radar of news organizations again! The presidentita must really love you now for wiping out all the good publicity she got from her Apec trip.

Petron officials, of course, are downplaying the whole incident again…they say that the debris won’t cause environmental damage to the waters of Ozamis. That really isn’t the point, is it? The point is, another barge your company contracted sank again! Hello?! Dudes, your barge operations are crap!
