...and every other Hollywood liberal, who seems to have nothing but blissful thoughts when it comes to Fidel Castro's island paradise that is Cuba, should have to read. Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby wrote an excellent column on Sunday regarding Cuba's gulags where they keep political prisoners. This article represents one of the countless reasons why Miami's Little Havana will party like it's 1999 when Castro, who's in declining health, finally does die. Column's called "A Hero in Castro's Gulag."
Speaking of Castro, considering how Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez is starting to tighten his control of the media and has said he wants to eliminate term limits, I wonder why Hollywood types like Sean "Jeff Spicoli" Penn* love him so much. After all, they hate the president even though Bush has term limits and doesn't shut down TV networks because he doesn't like what they say about him. Can you imagine the protests that would ensue if Bush tried to shut down CNN?
*Credit for Penn's nickname needs to go to attorney/columnist/blogger Debbie Schlussel, who has written that Penn's nutty political views show that life often imitates art (Penn played the constantly-stoned Spicoli in the overrated film Fast Times at Ridgemont High).
