Kudos to Walter Lippmann for maintaining CubaNews, a Yahoo! group that has 1,248 members. CubaNews is a good place to find newspaper stories that have fallen off other web sites. I was reminded of that when looking for a piece that I wrote last month for the Houston Chronicle. I can't find it on the Chronicle site anymore, but CubaNews has it here.
Walter makes it clear he is sympathetic to the socialist regime, but accepts articles of all points of view. Introducing the story I wrote for the Chronicle, he wrote:
Tracey Eaton lived in Cuba for several years when the Dallas MORNING NEWS had a bureau there. He lived in a lovely house out in the Tarara suburb and often got around the city by motorcycle. This is an accurate snapshot of Cuba at the moment. -- WalterIndeed, I had a motorcycle while in Cuba. Sitting on the 1600cc Yamaha Road Star motorcycle, pictured above, is someone who is much better looking than I am - she's my former Cuban office assistant, a very capable young lady named Anita "Anitica" Macias.
