Then on the 10th, a short,cryptic note defining an “FC” as his method of passing advice to those responsible for food production. Sort of like Rumsfeld’s “snowflakes,” we can suppose.

June 13, a compliment on the leadership qualities of former Cuban Olympic great Alberto Juantorena. June 14, a comment on a “gratuitous insult” committed by Deng Xiaoping. June 16, a quote from a poem about Che. Yesterday, an apparent “FC,” somewhat inscrutable. All of these quite short by anyone’s standards, above all his.
