Links to posts you should read

Killcastro has had a website for some time. Now he's added a blog.  Charlie Bravo and Ziva have joined him and are doing some fine writing and reporting.

If you think 9/11 was an isolated incident, you must read Ziva's Timeline To War.

Cuban American Pundits, Conductor specifically, links to, and then comments on an article that discusses what really happened at the Moncada Barracks in 1953. fidel's brave revolutionaries shot and killed sick men in their hospital beds.

The Real Cuba points out that for the first time in 46-years there was no outdoor rally to celebrate the anniversary of fidel's 1953 attack.  The fear of demonstrations drove fidel to make his speech inside a closed theater. The link also has photographs of demonstrations that did occur outside.

Val at Babalublog has finally given in - he supports lifting the embargo if a few very reasonable conditons are met.

Robert at The 26th Parallel notes the judge hearing the Posada immigration case says the Bay of Pigs Invasion would be considered terrorism under today's standards. What?

He's also pinning hopes on the return of Ricky Williams. Well, we'll see if Mr. Williams can run against the Jaguars newly restructured defensive line on August 13. That's two Pro Bowl tackles - Marcus Stroud and John Henderson, run-stopping defensive end Paul Spicer returns healthy, and finally, for the first time in five years, a real pass rushing defensive end, Reggie Hayward.

Jacqueline Dowd at The 13th Juror has been keeping up with a real problem - the terrible conditions that some migrant workers are forced to live under.  Get illegal immigrant out of your head - some are, some are citizens. Folks are lured to the work camps with promises of money.  When they arrive, they find they have to pay the company for their shelter and food - and in some cases, booze and illegal drugs - so that they can never work their way out of the debt they incur by working. It's a problem that needs to be addressed. Jacqueline's latest post is here.
