In 1959 I was 5 years old. I liked playing baseball and was very afraid of Sister Mary Clemons my first grade teacher. I must confess I did not know how things were in Cuba then beyond what my family told me. But considering all the people who have died or been killed by this revolution perhaps someone could enlighten me? Did most Cubans use newspapers for toilet paper? Did all the broken sewer pipes spew human wastes into the streets? Was the tap water unfit to drink? Were the majority of islanders hungry all the time with many suffering from diabetes because of the high sugarcane diet with no decent high vitamin food? I wonder, did Cuba send their doctors and medicine to other countries while Cubans suffered and died from treatable medical conditions? Were there dengue fever outbreaks that the government tried to pass off as a new disease called "fever syndrome" so the leader wouldn't look foolish? Were all the houses crumbling into piles of rubble? Were Cubans not allowed in the tourist areas? Was making their daughters, mothers, wives and girlfriends the whores for the fat tourists okay with the family back in '59? Just how bad was it? Because all of the above is the current situation in Cuba and it's going south from there fast. Cubans everywhere know this but the world says to us prove that negative. But we cannot do that easily because Cuba is a prison where the government tries to control all information. However, in case anyone from the MSM hasn't noticed, everything we say in these blogs continues to be proved correct like last year's dengue outbreak that Castro at first lied about - as usual. So when will these so called journalists demand full access to the island before ever again printing or airing a word from the regime? But I promise you this media men...I know a bunch of Cubans that will make you eat your words in the near future. Better make your words soft and sweet for Cuban liberty.
