The Shakespearean Tragedy of ANGELO REYES

Exactly ten years ago, right after EDSA II,

Gen. Angie Reyes
was the most beloved, most admired man in the land,
second only perhaps to then Chief Justice Hilario Davide.

The Chief of Staff
seemed to be the epitome of an Officer and a Gentleman.

I still remember how Gen. Reyes fought back tears
when he had to escort Erap out of Malacanang a decade ago.

I pray that something good
will come out of the General's tragic passing.

I would like to think of him as he was in 2001, a hero and a patriot,
rather than the broken, defeated man he was in his final days.

How does GMA figure in all this?

It seems Gen. Reyes's fall
coincided with her rise.

He was Hamlet, and
GMA, his Queen.

And something
still rots the state...
