Cuban Princess Mariela Castro opens Facebook page just like Cuba

The elitist crown princess of Cuba, Mariela Castro, has created a Facebook page for her adoring fans. And while initially her page was open for comments, the Castro dictatorship's jet-setting royal princess quickly shut that feature down.

Now, Princess Mariela's Facebook page is just like Cuba: You can see her, you can hear her, but you cannot speak to her or voice your opinion.

    Alberto, can you check with the relevant person/s as to what happened with the formal letter that was sent to the New York Public Library protesting its handling of Mariela Castro's talk there? The letter was a fairly impressive document signed by many people of note in the NY area, which means there should have been some sort of response, but nothing has been reported on that score to my knowledge. The sending of the letter was covered in the Enrisco and Café Fuerte blogs, but neither one has had follow-up as far as I can find, and it's been around six weeks since the letter was sent.
