Peso closing date dispute


There would be some people who would dispute your using the closing level of the peso on December 1, as the winning number for that bottle of Dom Perignon.

However, with the Chief Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court currently too busy with some thing or the other, and the one in the United States reoccupied with dimples and pregnant chads or whatever, this gracious loser concedes.
