Not that I miss their street theatrics. On the contrary, I'm glad they left that day alone.
Like the late leftist historian Renato Constantino and the "anti-elite" writer F. Sionil Jose, the leftists aren't exactly Rizal fans.
I understand that people have to have a stand. But good people can't be marble tough and not change their minds or habits or beliefs when the right catalyst comes.
Rizal stays my number one human being, dead or alive.
