Leonard Postrado is a former reporter of the Manila Bulletin and ex-Manila stringer for the Agence France Presse. He is one of the journalists who have been taken hostage by military dissidents during the failed 2007 Manila Peninsula coup d’etat. As a seasoned journalist, he eats death threats for breakfast while reading fan mails - mostly from people who sue him for libel. He has decided to leave the mainstream media and joined Calvinayre.com because he wants to gamble away his destiny.
