Manila seems to have had more than its share of scandals, but I am not about to post entirely about what may be the most famous of them. In fact, this post will not even give its full focus upon the Philippines. Rather, the focus will be on “scandal” and “police.” As for “Manila,” it will pop up in relation to the envelope of that description, since so often such envelopes are used to contain incriminating documents and/or photographs.
Anyway, the post is for entertainment (salacious or not), so give it a browse — you may find a reference that catches your interest.

1980s (Take Ten Years) (Amazon U.S.)
1980s (Take Ten Years) (Amazon U.K.)
Examines the top news stories of the 1980s, including war in Iran and Iraq, AIDS, and the opening of the Berlin Wall.
This book is part of a series that looks at the dramatic events, important changes and major figures in world history in ten-year periods. Each book contains year-by-year accounts of world affairs, eye-witness reports, developments in science and technology, style and fashion, inventions, discoveries and “firsts” in sport and exploration. This book looks at the 1980s, a decade in which pressure for change was felt all over the world. Mikhail Gorbachev introduced new policies in the USSR, and calls for democracy were heard from Eastern Europe to China. Most developed countries enjoyed a decade of prosperity, despite a stock market crash, and public awareness of environmental issues grew. Three major conflicts dragged on for nearly the whole ten years: thousands died in the Iran and Iraq war; in Afghanistan, the mujahaddin fought a long war against the Russian invaders; on the shores of the Mediterranean, Lebanon was torn apart by internal strife and foreign invasion. At the beginning of the 1980s, the main new power was militant Islam. In Tehran, the Ayatollah Khomeini preached Islamic fundamentalism, imposing strict traditional values on Iranian society.

John Dies at the End (Amazon U.S.)
John Dies at the End (Amazon U.K.)
David Wong has updated the Lovecraft tradition and infused it with humor that rather than lessening the horror, increases it dramatically. Every time I set the book down down, I was wary that something really was afoot, that there were creatures I couldn’t see, and that because I suspected this, I was next. Engaging, comic, and terrifying.– Joe Garden, Features Editor, The Onion “Wong is like a mash-up of Douglass Adams and Stephen King… ‘page-turner’ is an understatement.”–Don Coscarelli, director, Phantasm I-V, Bubba Ho-tep “That rarest of things–a genuinely scary story.”–David Wellington, author of Monster Island, Vampire Zero “JOHN DIES AT THE END has a cult following for a reason: it’s horrific, thought-provoking, and hilarious all at once. This is one of the most entertaining and addictive novels I’ve ever read.”–Jacob Kier, Publisher, Permuted Press STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don’t put it down. It’s too late. They’re watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you’ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it’s too late. You touched the book. You’re in the game. You’re under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why? You just have to trust me. The important thing is this: The drug is called Soy Sauce and it gives users a window into another dimension. John and I never had the chance to say no. You still do. I’m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind: None of this was my fault.
