    So Wenski meets with YS, in Miami. How nice. The pope, however, wouldn’t give a single minute to the Ladies in White in Cuba, where such a meeting would have been far more important and could have done far more good. It appears that all his free time was reserved for a warm and cozy meeting with Fidel Castro, his harpy "wife" and their spawn. There’s something seriously out of joint here, and if the RCC can’t or won't see that, well, do the math. And no, I don’t believe this is about cluelessness.
