About the Book, "BAD AND GOOD" This book is a mountain heap of miscellany, a little bit of plenty of everything - traffic, the source of despair and desperation, the proposed LRT 3 which eventually evolved into MRT, the day Ninoy Aquino died, the day Hitler died, the blood feud between two generals, a birthday greeting for Jose Rizal, the probable presidentiables of 1998, our song of love (our anthem), compared the warlike American anthem adopted from a drunkard's song, and the shitty song composed by Irving Berlin for our independence, "Heaven Help the Philippines," an accompaniment to "God bless America. " This is followed by the travails of Larry's wife, Cecilia, who lost a leg to sniper fire during the war, of Freddie Webb's son, Hubert, the Vizconde Massacre, and the Curse of the Undead. An essay on Water, the staff of life. And a proposal for a "Dolphin Economy" for the Philippines, not a "Tiger Economy" the preoccupation of most of our neighbors in Asia. An example of what an intelligent economist can think up, if he did not have the colonial mentality of misbegotten creeps who sell their souls to American assholes. The state of the nation in 1995, and hopes for year 2000. The coming Handover of Hong Kong from the British to the Chinese, and how the villainous and hypocritical British who poisoned the entire Chinese nation with opium, were trying to make it difficult for the Chinese by proposing a "democratic" regime for Hong Kong, never contemplated during the entire time of British Occupation. The British are really the worst assholes of the universe. Then Henares speculates on the viability of the Subic Freeport to be another Hong Kong. And he goes on to marvel at the emergence of the Chinese Economic Area made up of mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong - with their disparate economic systems, and interdependent, intertwining and complementary merging. Only the Chinese with their fascinating intellectual game called Go, can contrive this. Certainly not the Americans with their visceral non-intellectual game of poker, which emphasizes deceit, bluffing and bullying. Already Mainland China, which was the third largest in Gross Domestic Product at the time of the Handover, became the the second largest, overtaking Russia after the fall of the Communist world, and on schedule to surpass the American behemoth in the year 2029. Now Paris which has more palms than the Philippines has, and in which City of Light, Henares managed to get thrown out of the most expensive restaurant, without paying for his meal, and then went on to kiss Ingrid Bergman on the lips in the presence of her husband. Only a Filipino can manage to do that! Then the epic volcanic eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, the greatest since Mt. Vesuvius over Pompei in 79 AD, during the Roman times, and Mt. Krakatoa in Indonesia, in 1883, the greatest eruption of all times. And the lahar problems we encountered. Henares wrote of the martial art of Karate, introduced in the movie The Manchurian Candidate by Frank Sinatra, long before Bruce Lee did. And its other forms in China and Japan. And the private life of Manoling Morato, celibate, as a great lover, non-crook and padre de familia. The innocence of Ruben Hernandez, the heroism of Earl K. Wilkinson, and the greatness of the Diokno clan, grandfather, father and son! When comes such another? Rafael Alunan the Third, crush ng Bayan! And the genius of the Filipino race. The Asiatic Americans -- Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Vietnamese have a higher IQ than the White Anglo Saxon Protestants, if the Jewish who are Semites like the Arabs are not factored in as Whites. President Ramos who has more cabinet members than President Clinton, Tumescent Liposuction, the turning point of the Vicki Belo Saga, melatonin, the Fountain of Youth, Futures Trading, and Magicians from Dedi of Egypt to David Copperfield.
