Quote of the day

Cuban dictator Fidel Castro talking to “intellectuals” at the Cuban Book Fair and alluding to the murder of hunger striking political prisoner Wilman Villar Mendoza (my translation):

“It has almost become a political instrument where any symptom, any type of illness, a heart attack or whatever, and they say they were on a hunger strike. I laugh when I see all of this, I do not get upset, because I cannot stop them from telling lies. The problem is not that they lie, the problem is how we tell the truth. I cannot condone any type of repression and much less, any type of crime.”
