MRT Purple Line littered with large pictures of Angelica Panganiban in bra

The MRT Purple is getting terrible. Not the trains; they are excellent. Rather, the stations are becoming stiffling for the soul. They promote promiscuity. In the Araneta Center Cubao station where I go in the morning, there is a stand for the TRUST condoms. When I got off the Katipunan station, all the hallway pillars are covered with larger-than-life upper body pictures of Angelica Panganiban in bra. She is holding a green apple which the advertisers want to subliminally instill the temptation of Eve: the fruit of knowledge of good and evil. This Bar commercial should be barred. It is time to pass the Anti-Obscenity and Pornography Act of 2008.
I admire Angelica Panganiban as an actress. I saw her before playing Becky in Princess Sarah. But as the years went I saw movie posters of her playing “adult” roles as an another woman, for example. Princess Sarah, Camille Pratts, I heard also tried to recast herself as a sexy star. Too sad. Two wholesome faces turned sexy starlets. O how have you fallen from the heavens o morning stars, daughters of the dawn! I wish they will play more wholesome roles. Banana Split is not wholesome; it has many sexual undertones. NNNN (Ntertainment News Na Naman) is better: Angelica spoofs Kris Aquino so well that I am now beginning to think that Kris is spoofing Angelica so well. Oh, well.
Let us pray for our movie stars that they may truly be stars who lead edifying lives. Is there a patron saint for movie stars? Pope John Paul II was once a stage actor in Poland. If he becomes a saint, then we can call him the patron saint of actors and actresses.
