Finca Vigia baseball

A terrific story about the sandlot baseball that Hemingway organized for his sons and the neighborhood kids at his Finca Vigia home, from The New York Times. [Photo from the Times.]

[The story says Patrick Hemingway doesn't speak in public about his father, but in the comments section, Tracey Eaton links to an article he wrote where he quoted Patrick Hemingway.]

SORRY OFF TOPIC ...DEBATE

Fantomas own Poll 2nd debate

Obama 65%
Mc Cain 30%

Update: Todas las encuestas proyectan a a Obama ganador del Segundo Debate AMPLIAMENTE . Mc Cain se contradice cuando dice que quiere menos intervencion del Gobierno y ahora quiere comprar todos los prestamos malos para que la gente no pierda sus casas . La pregunta es con cual dinero el lograria esto.

Relacionado con Pakistan Obama lucio mucho mas experimentado que Mc Cain en ese tema. No se trata de invadir a Pakistan. Se trata de incursionar en dicho territorio sin avisarle a los Pakistanes si se tiene informacion del escondite de Osama.

Presidente Bush y su grupo ahora quieren hablar con Iran y Norcorea. Pero por 7 aƱos y medio esto nunca ocurrio. La politica de Obama tiene sentido , diplomacia directa si funciona si se hace de cara a cara . Sin precondiciones . Las condiciones se obtienen en la mesa de negociacion.

Con respecto a Cuba , Obama debe expresamente indicarles a los cubanos en la mesa sin precondiciones que soltar a TODOS LOS PRESOS POLITICOS, ACABAR CON LA REPRESION DE ESTADO Y PERMITIR LIBERTADES POLITICAS Y RELIGIOSAS DENTRO DE CUBA DEBE SER PRIORIDAD #1 ANTES DE SUAVIZAR NINGUN EMBARGO, REMESAS O RESTRICCIONES DE VIAJES

Con Mac Cain volveriamos a la retorica de la Guerra Fria con respecto a Cuba . Seria mas de lo mismo

That is a great story.
BTW, It says Patrick Hemingway never talks publicly about his father.
I interviewed him in 1997 and he told me, among other things, that his father sank deeper into depression after Fidel Castro seized control of Cuba in 1959.
"The Castro regime . . . was very much responsible for my father's death," said Pat Hemingway, 68, who lives in Montana. He said his father felt obliged to leave Cuba and give up his home after Mr. Castro seized control of the island.
"He was very much affected by the loss of his home in Cuba. It certainly contributed to his depression," Pat Hemingway said.
Here's the complete story:

Interesting that you mention that, Tracey, my grandfather first became friends with him after Hemingway began repairing the Pilar at his shipyard in Havana. The Old Man and the Sea was later filmed (part of it) at the yard. He had once told me the same tale, how Hemingway had changed in the year or so after Fidel took power. He truly loved that island and the rape perpetrated by Fidel sincerely hurt him to the core.

There are a few biographies that speak of this as well.
