Imelda Marcos, widow of Pres. Ferdinand Marcos, known for her extensive shoe collection, swanky lifestyle, obsession for beauty, and extravagant spending has been admitted for ankle sprains at Makati Medical Center in Manila on Saturday, September 13, 2008.
A faded political figure who never admitted any wrongdoing, the ageing former first lady, counts among the dwindling reminders of the old past who continues to escape the alleged crimes leveled against her after she and her husband were deposed by People Power in 1986.
With practically no accountability on the “congugal dictatorship” which ushered in the government as it is now, she is a top-notched beneficiary of the public’s “forgetfulness and forgiveness” of the past. She and her children roam free with their clout, money, and influence intact; they’re acting like “rehabilitated” members of Philippine society. =0=
