Title-mongers, chill out a bit. There’s a cholera outbreak in Cuba (contained, with 158 deaths thus far). Doesn’t mean that every news story title has to include a García Márquez reference. The irony of the whole thing is not lost on any literate human. We know GGM likes Cuba and Fidel. Let’s move on, shall we?
“Now, has Castro done some bad dictator shit? Yes. But can we get some perspective, please, on Fidel Castro? There are worse dictators in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Equatorial Guinea, and Turkmenistan, and those are just our friends!”
Forgiving the excessive alliteration up top, great comments from Bill Maher on Ozzie Guillén’s Castro-praise-gate.
