Pacquiao's novel amulet?
I ASSUME Ms. Beth Celis has attended at least the grade four class where basic science is taught. That she would find what she hears from a talisman expert worth printing is simply amazing. The trash superhero stories we see in films and TV today must be making kids out of adults, Celis included. But I insist that not everyone is happy or convinced with what she says. To quote people as a means of brandishing one's opinion--in this case to imply that Manny Pacquiao is so strong because he wears an amulet--is to associate oneself with the baseless notions of the source, even if somewhere in the column she says something else. Celis is part of the boxing media who, after making bums of themselves by saying Pacquiao did not stand a chance against Oscar dela Hoya, are now creating stories to explain why he is so great. This one about amulet is novel, and catches the attention of readers. But it steals from public view the amount of work Pacquiao puts into his craft, which in my view is what adults should consider as basis for anyone's success.
