question?[edit]

i want to know exactly what was lorenzo's question to nikita for the russian to react in such manner. can anyone post it here? thx. Rebskii 19:02, 15 October 2006 (UTC)rebskii

answer: Nikita Khrushev insisted, based on a resolution then under debate in the United Nations General Assembly, that all colonies or territories under the control of the "Western Countries" (Europe and the US)should be given their independence. Senator Sumulong asked "Nikita" if that was required, then why wouldn't it be equally fair and generous if all countries which had come under Russian control (all of Eastern Europe of more then 10 countries) should be given their freedom also. "Nikita" was so enraged he pounded the desk with his fist shouting insults at Senator Sumulong who was the Philippine Delegate to the UN General Assembly, and broke a very expensive watch. That enraged him even more, so he took his shoe off, and pounded the desk repeatedly, continuing the attack of insults. The General Assembly quickly adjourned to the applause of all the delegates.DAC3124.104.189.97 18:09, 27 August 2007 (UTC)—

Highway named after him?[edit]

I went to the Philippines to surf a few years ago and recall quite well that that one of the highways we used to get to a shrine in Antipolo (am I correct in the spelling?) was called Sumulong Highway. Was this named after him? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.50.176.34 (talk) 13:22, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Definitely named after his family at the very least. Quite likely it was named after him in particular, but other members of his family were also prominent in Antipolo, so it could have been named after any of them as well.--Anyo Niminus (talk) 14:28, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
