DURST: Acting Presidents

Durst writes: "The Philippines largest opposition party nominated Joseph Estrada, a former movie star, as their presidential candidate in next year's elections. The party, known as the Struggle of the Nationalist Filipino Masses, obviously needs a jump start, as their name is one of those that fall trippingly off the tongue like a genetic compound's enzymatic base. It also may go a long way in explaining why Philippines is spelled with two p's and Filipino is only spelled with one."
