I am presently reading two books by former Sen. Miriam Santiago entitled Stupid Is Forever, her take on politics, love, her life as a senator of the land, her quips on her enemies. and about life itself. She used to be so outspoken, sometimes even sarcastic in front of her colleagues in the Senate but she definitely made sense. She was a top-notch lawyer, an intellectual.
Here are some of the quotes lifted from her two books.

Some jokes are corny of course, they are mostly written in the vernacular. I love her article on weaponizing social media. These two books are what we say, “Miriam na Miriam”. They are a nice change from the usual books that I read.
