Adrian E. Cristobal - the great essayist, political satirist and writer passed on yesterday, December 22, 2007. He was a close friend and a colleague of my father during the Marcos era and thereafter. A friend to many, a loving father and a great teacher in literature and creative writing. I learned much from him especially in the field of political satire and in the fine art of sarcasm. He will always be my 'professor,' both in each stroke of a pen and in the many lessons in life. Among the many books he wrote were, 'Occasional Prose,' 'Pasquinades,' 'The Tragedy of the Revolution,' and 'The Millennium President.' Adieu, Adrian. Until we meet again.
