Radio and television reports the other morning said castro was sick and had temporarily turned control of Cuba over to his slightly younger brother, raul. As soon as I had a chance, I sat down to find out what news Robert (at 26th Parallel) and Val (at Babalu) had.
Not surprisingly, both were providing the kind of perspective you don't find in the media. Also not surprisingly, Val was blogging up a storm between interviews from media sources who were in need of that perspective.
Yesterday's Palm Beach Post carried a piece titled Commentary: Aunt's haunting eyes reveal to blogger that Cuba is about family about Val, his blog and his family. (h/t The Florida Masochist, thanks for the email)
Congratulations to Val and his blog's other contributors as they fast approach their one millionth hit.
