Your Tuesday Babalú Ajiaco for July 17, 2012
Help yourself to a bowl of our Tuesday Babalú news ajiaco:
- There may be many shortages in Castro's Cuba -- items such as food, clothes, soap, freedom -- but there is definitely no shortage of lamebrain ideas. The latest in the long list of imbecilic schemes is the new Biodiesel Plant that promises to make the communist tyranny in Havana energy independent quicker than two shakes of a worm's tail.
- For most Cubans, the so-called economic reforms of the Castro dictatorship have done nothing to improve their lot in life. However, for the elitist members of the Cuban regime, the "reforms" are a boon. Just ask regime apparatchik and Havana "historian" Eusebio Leal, who is cashing in by renting space in Havana's historical buildings.
- South African students sent to Cuba to study medicine are getting a taste of life as Cubans: Doctors Reduced to Beggars.
- Woman flees repression in Cuba. Woman finds freedom in America. Woman attempts to realize American dream. Woman decides to partner up with the same dictatorship in Cuba she fled and open a Cuba package business. Bank closes woman's account. Woman cannot understand what the problem is.
- In case you thought Juanes had learned his lesson after the embarrassing debacle of his so-called Peace Concert in Cuba, think again: Oscar D'Leon and Juanes to appear on Los Van Van's next album.
