As Hurricane Sandy devastates Cuba, bloggers rise to the challenge

Cuban bloggers are showing surprising initiative in responding to Hurricane Sandy, which has killed 11 and caused significant damage since making landfall there on Thursday.

    The links are not working well. Maybe it's the storm.

    Bush. It was Bush what done did this. I know it to be true, because some guys from chicongo done told me.

    You wanna disagree with that? You're a racist.

    That proves it.
