Ninoy, Noynoy, No-No.

That’s pretty much how the Philippine elections look to someone whose dance card was punched for years by Manila politics.

I was barely out of kidhood when I covered the overthrow of Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines, so Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III – son of the assassinated politician Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr. and his wife, the recently deceased former president Corazon “Cory” Aquino – was just a boy when I was there Lets not get started on the Filipino nickname thing; one of his sisters is Ballsy.

I met him a few times, huddled up against his widowed mom and his sisters. But he never said much back then.
