    I hope I can get a copy of his Inquirer column’s compilation Rizal without the Overcoat… It is just fun to read, to see the more humane and realistic side of Rizal’s personality. Ambeth is no chismoso, just unconventional and not boring, like the many writters who are over superficial with “praise-be-Rizal” writings… Wah! No wonder he got the chair…
