Any taker? I wonder how much the reward is....

But with or without the reward, I enjoin all Batanguenos and Batanguenas, home province of some of the valiant heroes and heroines of the Philippine Revolution and of the Filipino-American War to do their part in preserving whatever is left of Earth and its diverse species.
