And now, a Filipino First:

Quite possibly the very first time for the phrase “chicken adobo” to appear on the front page of the New York Times:

“I’m going to fatten my boy up a bit with some chicken adobo and rice when he gets home,” [Anecita Hudson] said after she learned that Specialist Joseph N. Hudson, 23, had been set free.

(You all know how I feel about the war — yes, I support the troops, but they’re fighting an unjust war — but I thought the “adobo” comment was touching all the same.)
