In allusion to the Long Grey Line, this section entitled “The Long Grey Notes” would include a take on the Philippine situation and being a voracious reader, blogs on recent readings consist of a thesis of the book, article, or website, and how they can be applied to the Philippine situation.

This section includes all other blogs not necessarily categorized under the sections “The Grey, The Green and The Golden Orange” [Steel Manufacturing] and “The Grey Undertones” [Internet Security]
