Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

I haven't read the New York Times regularly for some time, which leaves me without a major daily paper. Perhaps I should subscribe to the Washington Post, even though I live in New York? This Editorial about current events in Cuba gives one enormous hope for the sanity and decency of at least part of our mediacracy (mediocracy? hmmmmm . . .). Apparently, the key to getting mainstream support for opposition to Communist tyranny: use liberal weapons. The proposed national referendum is how the Chileans ultimately got rid of Pinochet. Be kind of embarrassing to let the Cuban tyrant avoid a similar procedure.
