The Steel Butterfly returns

Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines who caused some problems for The Beatles during their 1966 visit to the Southeast Asian country, is making headlines these days with her return to public office.

Imelda Marcos became an object of scorn for her extravagant lifestyle when a gigantic collection of shoes was found in the presidential palace after the family fled the country. Her husband died in Hawaii in 1989.
. . .

Imelda Marcos has made it clear she wants to achieve redemption for her late husband, who is accused of stealing billions of dollars from state coffers during his 20-year rule.
