  1. The Cuba Transition Project of the University of Miami’s Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies has a very interesting biographical sketch of Ricardo Alarcón de Quesada.

    It describes him as “honest and very modest in his private life, unlike may other Cuban leaders, he married only once and remains very much concerned about his wife’s illness.”

    He is also “considerably popular” in Cuba. As proof of it, it asserts that he finished third to Fidel and Castro in “secret and direct elections” held during the IV Congress of the Communist Party in Cuba.

    It concludes that “unquestionably, Alarcón de Quesada remains for many (meaning The Cuban Transition Project) as an attractive option to move ahead with reforms and an eventual succession.”

    Alarcón doesn’t even get that good a press in Cuba.
