All in a day’s work in Havana

I find this, so offensive on so many levels; I´m not sure where to start. The tossing out of the cost, when you think about the salary of an average Cuban. Also, it must be nice to ride out the rainstorm by kicking back with expensive food and cigars, instead of worrying about your building collapsing.

They´re inviting comments, feel free to vent.

  1. The most offensive comment was the “men on a lifeboat” remark. Very clever.

    Go fuck yourself you prick.

    Where is the law being applied in cases like this?

  2. OK, got to love these segments:

    …”I must be in a slightly strange mood but I found it sort of sexy taking apart the Culebra to smoke. There are two fine silk red ribbons on each end that you need to unravel to take the cigar apart. It reminded me of undoing a few other things before enjoying something very pleasurable…”

    “…I would buy the cigars again just to undo those red ribbons!…”

    Dare I say, read between the lines?

  3. There’s a good possibility that James Suckling is on a Cuban government hidden video suckling something that he’d rather not be seen by the rest of the world. If that something is younger than 18 it could be big legal trouble too.

  4. “Cigar Aficionado” magazine has long been a notorious example of blatant conflict of interests. Every word it puts out on Cuba has to be seen in that light, and the light is not at all flattering. Yes, Suckling is an amoral prick (he even looks it), but the magazine is at least as bad.

    When I first became aware of it some years ago, I would write impassioned letters to the editor, but that didn’t last long. It’s remarkable how defensive people get when you’ve got their number and call them on it, even in the most polite language.

    I would hope no Cuban-American, no matter how much of a cigar buff, would have anything to do with such a tainted publication, even if there will always be some who would rather look “sophisticated” or “progressive” than worry about things like honor and dignity.

    “Cigar Aficionado,” if it’s still around when Cuba becomes free, should absolutely reap what it sowed while Cuba was miserable and suffering under totalitarian oppression. Never forget.

  5. I’m sure this fine gentleman departed from the interview en-route to the Malecon, where he promptly picked up the first 16-year-old girl he could find.

    Que sinverguenza.
