Arsenio H. Lacson of Manila
“He had everything, or almost everything going for him. His belly lusted for nothing except a good fight. He was as honest as they come, and of course he had vision.
“He is the quintessential political fighter, always in his corner, waiting for the bell. When that bell rang, you somehow knew that nobody as colorful, as intrepid, as breathless for action and performance, ever stepped into the political ring.”
— Excerpt from “Here’s the Score” by Teodoro Benigno
