When Spam is not just Spam

Spam shows up again in Karen's post. The other day's post by Fay Olympia also mentioned the ubiquituous Spam in those balikbayan boxes sent to the Philippines.
On the backchannel, the Consul General of Los Angeles is convening a Peace Forum and a friend solicited my opinion on how to focus this discussion. I said that given her interest in the "Books for the Barrios" issues, perhaps she should suggest something along the lines of "Education for Peace" -- what does it mean to be "educated" these days? what should Filipinos be educated for and why?
