Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo–Interruptus
I call your attention to an interesting item:
At the recent CATO Conference featuring Cuban dissidents Yoani Sanchez and Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, when the latter starts explaining the Castro-regime's "fraud reform" and how sad it will be if this "fraud reform could facilitate the flow of foreign capital into Cuba"--he's suddenly interrupted by a moderator-translator?
(go to 27.20 on speech)
Despite the damaging effects it would obviously have on his delivery, Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo chose to speak in his (surprisingly good, but obviously heavily-accented) English rather than let his speech and answers be filtered through a moderator...(who perhaps had an agenda???)
I don't know Mr Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, and it's entirely likely that--if he's even heard of us-- he regards us all as insufferable intransigents, beyond the pale--but so what? He's an edgy and ultra-sharp dude. He's remained immune to most of Castroite "education" (indoctrination) and he had an important message...wish he could have expounded on it further...
