With the in-the-near-future resignation / retirement / assuming ambient temperature of Fidel Castro, will we now see a mass movement of Cubans moving back to their promised ancestral homeland?
Shortest answer? N.F.W., they have it far too good here to go back.
I’ve always been amazed that in all these years with so many (To paraphrase Lucy Ricardo) hot headed Latin guys running around in the South East U.S. making noise about their never-ending plans to re-take their country, no one has made much of an invasion that worked, or managed to even get close to bumping off a leader that, from all the photos I’ve seen, goes around walking through the crowds and in the past played baseball without an armored bubble over him.
Unless you count that (maybe photoshopped in) helmet.
I think I was about 10 or 11 years old when Castro took over, and since then I’ve grown up (well, more or less) listening to a one sided flow of official crap from our government about what a hellhole the place is, with no food, no economy, etc.
Somehow left out of the equasion is the part about how we have kept a blockade in place around the island and made it off limits to American tourists, blocking dollars from entering the economy. Also not talked about is the almost 100 percent literacy rate, which sure proves that the Bush family never spent much time there.
I sure wish I could remember where I was going with this when I started, but with the constant interruptions from the assistant director of the film I’m working on, I hardly have time to open my powerbook, much less crank out more of this cranky screed.
So it goes…….
