Val’s in the news, again!
Val‘s in the front page of “The” Miami dead-tree press, the Miami Herald. Not the first time, however, that newspapers have noticed the Babalu Blog. Hear him explain why he blogs,
But, obviously and as most of you that come here regularly know, I write mostly about Cuba. Why is that, you say?
Well, apart from the obvious reason, because I can. Because I am free to do so. I can sit here at my computer everyday and tell fidel castro to kiss my ass. Because I am an American and I have the right – and the responsibility that comes along with it – to express my opinions.
Freedom of speech, freedom of expression… Freedom.
It’s a different story on that island shaped like a crocodile just South of us. There are no opinions allowed in castro’s Cuba. No freedom of the press, no freedom of speech. Nada.
Also at the Babalu, news that Hugo Chavez of Venezuela
was voted as realtor of the year in some contest. Not because he actually sold any real estate, but because he was responsible for much of the new real estate being sold to many Venezuelans here in South Florida.
