Walang takot ang mga nagtatanong, very lurid ang questions, tipong no-holds barred.
But there are a few times na meron din namang sense ang questions sa kanya like somebody who asked if he’s interested in running as a senator.
“Would you consider running for senator? I want to see you in a debate against Miriam. :),” one guy asked the loquacious radio and TV host.
“I wanted to be senator badly when I was younger. Trust me, if I was in government, my first law would be: Mandatory that all children of politicians must enroll in the PUBLIC SCHOOL of their jurisdiction. Non-negotiable. So their kids would come home and give first hand account of what’s going on. So these leaders would be concerned about their childrens as much as these other parents. I’m so sick of these motherfucking politicians always saying how they value education but send their kids abroad for education or to the high end schools. Public school education if you want to be in office. And you’ll see, a miracle! Better computers. Better books. Better infrastructure. Fuck, better bathrooms!”
That was Mo’s sensible answer.
And if we may add: dapat rin silang sumakay sa public transportation. As it is kasi, hindi nila naranasan na sumakay sa jeep, taxi or tren. Kung ma-experience nila ito ay tiyak na mag-iiba ang kanilang perspective sa buhay.
