The Boston Globe is WHINING: CUBA owes the U.S. 7 billion dollars

AN AMERICAN: a person who puts a price tag on everything and does not know the value of anything.

Frederich Cepeda is headed for the Yomiuri Giants in Japan

That is a Cuban baseball player that has a lot of DIGNITY! Japan is a country that builds excellent quality cars.

Read it at the NZ Herald

[JG: AP very conveniently forgot to tell the world that the amount of the contract is 150 Million Japanese Yen. I hope that comrade Frederich does not make the mistake of converting it to HIGHLY DEPRECIATED U.S. dollars. Buy a nice Toyota Lexus.]

Reminiscing about the 23 y 12 movie house

This was my favorite movie house in El Vedado. It was within walking distance of my home. After the movie ended, I would walk a few steps to that very famous and historical corner and buy very tasty Cuban Fritas. Cost: 10 centavos each. Can someone tell me what is the cost of that delicacy today in my old neighborhood? LONG LIVE CUBA!

The Pativerdes won the championship in the 50th National Baseball Series of Cuba, and they have done it again in the 53rd. It proves that Señor Urquiola is a superb baseball manager. He should be named the new manager of Team Cuba in international competitions.
