Ed. Note: Ricardo Alarcon is the recently ousted Cuban dictatorship official who in 2008 infamously told a Cuban university student who asked why Cubans were not free to travel that the world needed travel restrictions because if everyone was free to travel, the skies would fill up with passenger planes. This, Alarcon explained, would cause a dangerous traffic jam in the air and the airplanes would end up crashing into each other. Read more about that discussion HERE.
