    The response (or lack thereof) to this horror by the world's media, politicians, "intellectuals" and "humanitarian" celebrities encapsulates all one needs to know about the world's hypocrisy, falseness and perversity regarding Cuba. If an unfashionable right-wing regime like Pinochet's, let alone Botha's, had done the same thing, the response would have been radically different. Once again, I repeat the obvious: that world is FULL OF SHIT, and it does NOT deserve one iota of respect.

    Gee, I wonder what Rev. Joan Brown Campbell would say/do about this. After all, she was SO concerned over little Elián's fate and all. But wait, wouldn't she have said/done something back in 1994, or at least long before now? Imagine that.

    Maybe we're blowing this all out of proportion. There's always the Lula explanation: the dead, like Orlando Zapata Tamayo, were just delinquents who basically had it coming. That would explain why the New York Times treated this incident like a man-bites-dog story--and the NYT is the paper of record, you know.
