antonio de quiros... because despite giving his opinion. never falters in focusing too on the bigger picture.

zeneida amador, when she was still alive... because i find whatever she had to say interesting.. especially when it had to do with culture.

clinton palanca... because he writes of things i wouldn't care to take a second look at, makes it worth my time, and leaves me laughing.

anton san diego, when he still had a column in the lifestyle section of the PDI... because, like clinton, he provided a humorous, sometimes satirical view of the scene. especially loved the blind items.

most of the columnists on the weekly panorama... especially this one particular man who always writes about literature and art. when i read his articles, i feel like a college freshman again, awed by the brilliance of philippine literary greats who i saw everyday as teachers.

i'm sure there's a few more.. will add to this list later.

i do know though who i WON'T consider a favorite.. or even worthy of reading--celine lopez. seriously, she gets paid to write crappily about her crappy i'm-too-rich-and-trying-so-hard-to-stay-thin-and-be-cool life.. where's the justice in that?!

Horacio Paredes, because he's constantly onto those government dog's neck. regardless kung kaibigan nya yung head nung tuta n yun wla sya pakialam.

Danny Hernandez for having an unquestionable integrity and dignity not bowing to his killers even at the last moment of his life. His Sunday Punch at People's Journal is a daily routine for me. I really love how he lambast those corrupt government official and hoodlum in robes that eventually led to his untimely death. He was born poor and died poor.

Lastly, Gary Lising for his unmatched toilet humor mixed with politics. Never a dull moment when reading his column.

Teddy Benigno, except when he becomes too political. No body can beat his mastery of firing up the English language.

Ramon Tulfo also comes in handy, especially when I'm in the toilet suffering from constipation.

here in the States it's PAUL KRUGMAN of New York Times, he's a professor of economics from Princeton University, and also E.J. Dione, Jr. of Washington Post.

in Manila, it was Teddy Benigno of Philippine Star and the second was Max Soliven of the same paper.

de quiros... always tries to put the issue in its best perspective, that is both sides of the story, and can mix serious topics with humor and punch. never fails to stir my interest.

Ambeth Ocampo. Most of the time he writes about Rizal. But he also compares our present day scenario with life during the spanish era. very very interesting. and he has a way of making national heroes sound more "normal" instead of the bigger than life" image projected by other historians.
