“Here’s what happened. As I was laying the premise for my question, I saw Sen Drilon look down at the documents he had on the table. I did not see him fall asleep,” sagot ni Webb.

Dinepensahan rin nina Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. at former senator JV Ejercito si Senator Drilon.
“He was one of my superiors at ACCRALAW. A genius. I got him into the Cory (Aquino) Cabinet. He became her most efficient Executive Secretary,” sabi ni Locsin.
“Drilon asleep makes more sense talking in his sleep than most officials wide awake,” dagdag ni Locsin.

Para naman kay dating Senator Ejercito, si senator Drilon ay “one of the most brilliant Senators I have worked with.”
“When he stands up at the podium, you have to be prepared. He does his homework. Most of his interpellations are very essential in the improvement of any passed measure,” dagdag ni Ejercito.
