  1. Yes, you absolutely nailed Ana Menéndez on her statistical slight of hand. Of course, you know what her real agenda is: the same one espoused by those who try to paint pre-Castro Cuba in similar colors; the justification of Statism. We know what fruits it bore in Cuba, and Ms. Menéndez desires no less for Miami/Dade County.

  2. Does anybody actually take this Menendez person seriously? I see she’s still going without the accent required by her surname in Spanish (and it is Spanish, not English). Too ethnic, perhaps? Or maybe too Cuban? Surely the paper wouldn’t dare prevent her from using it, what with pluralism and all. If I want an opinion, on anything, she’s definitely not the one I’d go to. But yes, I supppose there are those who would buy what she’s selling, especially if it’s also what they want to hear. No sale here, though, that’s for sure.

  3. This reminds me of the famous scene from the movie Casablanca (1842):
    Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?
    Captain Renault: I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
    [a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
    Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
    Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.
    Captain Renault: Everybody out at once!
    Ana Menendez signed the petition to the herald publisher pleading that the underhanded Jim DeFede be rehired after he was fired.
