Quote of the day
Cuban American writer Esteban Fernandez comments on Yoani Sanchez and her world tour (my translation):
"Someone said to me: 'Who do you think you are that you would dare criticize this patriot?' And I replied asking who the hell is Yoani Sanchez and what makes her untouchable? Who am I? I am nothing out of this world. I am simply a humble Cuban who 20 years before Yoani was born was already publicly defecating on Fidel Castro on every corner of my town. On the buses, at the institute where I was expelled for not accepting the tyranny, and everywhere else."
