Odds and ends

● The chill in Cuba’s and Venezuela’s diplomatic relations with Mexico seems to have ended with new ambassadors taking their posts in Mexico City. Roy Chaderton, the Venezuelan ambassador, dressed in white, with a Nehru jacket, for the occasion. (News agency photo.)

● Ricardo Alarcon, asked about Fidel Castro’s assertion that a missile, not a plane, hit the Pentagon on 9/11, does his best. (Full transcript here, scroll down.)

● From one columnist to another, 10 questions about Fidel’s column.

● Bolivian President Evo Morales, in remarks in Cochabamba as he delivered 92 tractors, declared that Bolivia needs its own Plaza de la Revolucion. “We will ask the Cuban ambassador to advise us” in the project, he said. Continuing in the royal plural, he envisioned “millions and millions” of Bolivians gathering in the plaza “to hear us and to guarantee this process of change.”

I see that you link to Babal� which does not link to you; but you do not link to Killcastro, which does link to you.

Any special reason?

BTW, Evo Morales should ask Batista's ghost how to build a "Plaza de la Revolución" (i.e. "Plaza Cívica") in Bolivia, since Castro and his minions had nothing to do with its construction.

Killcastro is reasonable and insightful; Babalu is an ideolouge (and a redneck). He once said he loved Ann Coutler. I mean, I am conservative leaning a lot of times, but she is facist.

Cubans should be real scared of the "freedom" sought by Babalu-types.
