A hell of a saying

Professor Felipe Miranda has a good column in the Star today. And not just because he’s remarkable dispassionate about my grandfather (though that was a pleasant surprise). Miranda often tends to be grim but when he’s playful, he manages to have a stronger wallop than when he’s just plain old serious.

I am tempted to write a column about my grandfather’s eternally (mis)quoted “I prefer a government run like hell by Filipinos to a government run like heaven by Americans,” but I mention Quezon too often in my column as it is, so perhaps later today I’ll just get it off my chest with a rant here.
