"Pambansang Alagad ng Sining" of the Filipino people
The EQualizer Post presents this humble tribute to the Filipino people's choice for the Pambansang Alagad ng Sining honor.
Regardless of the bureaucratic indecision to name Dolphy a national artist up to now, Dolphy is THE "Pambansang Alagad ng Sining" of the Filipino people.
He had an instinctive feel for the aspirations and fears of the Filipino people and an encyclopedic knowledge of their idiosyncrasies.
Dolphy's death has robbed us of a comic genius. He bequeaths a body of work comparable with the very best.
