Your Tuesday Babalú Ajiaco for February 21, 2012

After a few days out on the road, it is good to come home to a steaming bowl of Babalú's world famous Tuesday ajiaco. Enjoy!

  • Cuban exiles make a pilgrimage to Cuba for Pope Benedict XVI's upcoming visit, hoping the papal appearance will "signal change" on the island, just like it did in 1998 after the visit by Pope John Paul II. Oh, wait... nothing really happened after that visit.
  • The Castro dictatorship has condemned the Spanish government for criticizing the regime's dismal human rights record. According to the Castro government's Deputy Foreign Minister, Cuba does not welcome Spain's interference in what he referred to as their "internal affairs." Moreover, the Castro minister said, and I am paraphrasing here, "what we do with our slaves is our business and you have no right to stick your nose in it."
  • Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass) says it is time for U.S. policy towards the murderous, brutal, repressive, and vile Castro dictatorship in Cuba to mature. By "mature," McGovern means it is time to stop pushing and adhering to such juvenile ideals such as freedom and democracy and instead we should be grown ups and embrace the slave masters in Havana.
  • Our good friend Hank Tester from NBC6 Miami examines how Pope Benedict XVI may be putting his credibility on the line when he visits Cuba next month. Considering the total lack of credibility the hierarchy in Cuba's church has now, the Pope has a tough road ahead.
