My dad is 88 today and I still love that penmanship that he learned in Cuban schools

We celebrate today my father's 88th birthday.   He was born in 1926 in Sagua La Grande, Las Villas. We are happy to report that he's in good health and will enjoy another birthday along with my mom and quite a few phone calls from family and friends. There are many things to admire about […]

Dear Jorge Ramos: I’m not impressed with your tweets of outrage

(My new American Thinker post) President Obama said that he will act on immigration reform after the elections.  I guess that he finally got the memo that a lot of Democrats in red states do not want any more Obama burdens to carry around or reasons to stay away when the President is in town. Some are […]

No “hope and change” for blacks in the Obama years

Let's look at the US for a second. I mean let's take a look at the "sorry" state of black America under our first black president: "For black Americans, age 16 and older, seasonally adjusted, the unemployment rate between July and August stayed the same at 11.4%, and that is up from the 10.7% rate […]

It was 50 years ago today that our family arrived in the US

Where did the time go?   The answer is that it did pass. It was 50 years ago today that our family landed in Miami after a 2 month odyssey that began on July 2nd when we departed Cuba via Mexico City.    Along the way, our plane almost crashed, we lived through an earthquake, […]

It’s a good thing that more and more Cuban ‘Pedro Pan’ children are telling their stories

(My new post about Pedro Pan kids) It’s an amazing story. It involved children, from 5 to 18 years old. It happened almost daily in Cuba as parents took their children to the airport, put them on plane and waved goodbye.  My parents looked into it but decided that we would leave together rather than separately.
