“God is not yet ready to receive me, said Ruther Batuigas, a Manila based columnist, when I last met him. God is not sure where to place me, in Heaven or Hell. I am such a bastard, he said with a smile, but I am ready when He is. I have been shot and stabbed, I’ve already died 3 times, I have been to the other side and returned. Guess I have still things to do here”. A few days ago Ruther turned 78 and still ticking. A man larger then life, with 2 films to his name.
