Si Cory, pagkatapos ng anim na taon, umalis na rin. Pero isipin ‘nyo rin ito: Si Ferdinand Marcos, ang presidenteng umastang hari, ang diktador na tinaguriang isa sa pinakasakim na pinuno sa kasaysayan— I-Google ninyo ang “most corrupt leaders” para mas malinaw— si Marcos, si Makoy, si FM, nasa poder ng dalawampu’t isang taon.
