this man got character and courage
RIP old man... you may finally rest those tired legs
i hope that some of the senior members of govn will be magnanimous and say some nice things about JBJ.. after all said and down, he sought to serve the public interest and some respect is surely due.
heaven is always unfair, some other people deserve to die long time ago but they still living happily, yet ppl like JBJ who i respected highly has to go unfortuntately... where is equity in this world?
09 Oct 09 officially marks the date I become a canon convert.
Nothing to do with right or wrong. Just the assertion that he will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by many.
Who? How many?
By his political enemies?
By those who avoided and shunned him during his life?
By the ST?
Frankly, apart from his friends and relatives and ex-colleagues, and a few "western" human rights groups, I doubt there'll be many others who will miss or remember him.

Long may u rest in peace coz in u i learn the word -RESILIENCE.
To me, it does not matter whether his believes is mainstream or alternative, what it matter is that he has his own beliefs, his own principle and stood by his own beliefs. For this, I respect him. May he rest in peace and my sincere condolences to his family.
he stood despite the financial and legal odds against him.
