The King is Dead

Everybody is probably aware of the latest tragedy in Philippine showbiz. Come on, the guy just cant suddenly have a heart attack without being sick first! He could have been sick for the longest time, he just chose not to tell anyone or let it leak out of the press. I am doing this blog entry in respect of the King of Phillipine Cinema Fernando Poe Jr. His work was well respected, his earlier ones anyway, like "Sto. Domingo" and "Low Waist Gang". Its sad that his supposed most significant contribution in Philippine society, his bid for the Philippine Presidency, ended in failure. His final days were borne more on reclusive shame rather than quiet dignity. He refused interviews and chose to live in silent solitude. So much for his last exit.
