As some of you may still remember, I figured in an online fight with Sassy Lawyer some time ago. (The post I wrote defending Deannie Bocobo is the Newsstand page with the most number of views, if the three tracking systems I use are any gauge. Apparently, readers like a good scrap.) Since meeting her at an ANC show and exchanging small talk at the lobby afterwards, I have sort of lost track of Sassy, at least online. Now Exie Abola has resurrected an entire cluster of synapses in my aging brain, with his cogent column today on Sassy’s “philistinism” in the matter of Amado V. Hernandez’s Birds of Prey. It is, unfortunately for Sassy, a complete evisceration.
