Emilio Aguinaldo, Manuel Quezon, Manuel Roxas, Ferdinand Marcos—of course, and now Rodrigo Duterte all seem to have manifested dictatorial tendencies while in office ........»»

Player of the Week: Garvo Lanete leading Meralco resurgence

Desperate times call for desperate measures. And for undermanned Meralco, it found a hero in Garvo Lanete, who kept the Bolts' flickering playoff hopes alive in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup.
