if people calls the police at 7pm for a small private party, in a Saturday night, what to expect from "party houses" in residential areas. RobertRich's comment is a good example of the extremism in SB. Asking for regulating noise for private parties is a good example of intolerance. I know someone who bought a house in Hope Ranch. One day, his dog was barking for an hour, in the early afternoon, and the neighbors called the police. They got a citation and their address was listed in the HR local neighborhood paper. Does it makes sense to you go to those extremes? I think, in SB, people needs to learn to be more tolerant. To only report or complaint about serious issues, or when the party becomes a weekly problem, like the party houses mentioned in the article.

why was this article showcased on the front page of the Independent? it is like making the guy felt proud of his past actions. Even the title shows up the admiration the writer feels for him: Surfer, Robber, Writer, Lifer, it make it sounds like he was/is a great man. Oh well, I might be wrong but even the part where the writer describes her trip to see him in prison sounds too "romantic", like she wants to looks sexy for him; she also knows he will be reading the article too. Lets wait for the next article, he is probably going to get several compassionate visits from lonely women who sees him as a victim. He was a criminal and he is paying for his past actions. He got a chance to change and he destroyed his future one more time. There is nobody to blame but himself for his wrongdoing, so do not try to make him looks like a victim of society.

sometimes, a parent might force a kid to become a gay. I have seen a women raise her son like a girl (let his hair grow very long, dress him up like a girl, treat him like a girl, ...) and he indeed looks like a girl already but at least he still plays like a boy with other kids. How much damage is this mother going to cause to her son because of some psychological issues she has after not having the girl of her dreams? sad, very sad. Hopefully the boy will be strong enough to be himself and not some girlish creation his mom taught him to be. A gay will know at the right moment he/she is gay, then deal with that. Luckily, the modern world is changing the way people thinks and behave towards gays but there are still strong issues with that, among religious people, or intolerant governments. People needs to be educated to be tolerant and to understand that every person has the right to be itself.

Yesterday, I got an email from an old neighbor. She has access to email because she has a friend who works for the cuban government that allows her to check/send emails a few minutes every day, mostly at midnight. She can not writes anything related with Fidel or news about Cuba because she won't be able to use her friend's email anymore to communicate with her daughter. She is the only contact I have with my mother, who still lives in Cuba at the moment, and she is the only resource I have to say hi to my mom. Lets go back to her email. I asked her about the rest of the people from my building, when I used to live there. Her answer was depressing. Almost everybody passed away. No only the elderly, which is normal, but in Cuba they die younger (50-60 years old); but almost all of the young kids I grew up with passed away as well. The ones that are still healthy and alive are the ones, like myself, who decided to leave that country. Does that tells you something about the good cuban health system and life style?. It is good if you pay in dollars but not if you go to a regular hospital or medical clinic. The only way to be healthy, is by giving "presents" to "friend doctors" who will see you correctly. My father passed away waiting for attention in a hospital. He was having a stroke and nobody came to see him until it was too late. There was a student trying to insert a tube through his throat to do a tummy cleaning while he was getting worst by seeing another old patient dying next to his bed, who was getting the same treatment. Like a terror movie, you see when they kill the person next to you and you are sure you will be next but you can not run! My mother was traumatized forever, she does not wants to go to a hospital anymore after that horrible experience. Hank, I think Sanity was being sarcastic, he mentioned something that is a good idea for those thinking about doing business in cuba: DON'T!.

Perhaps they want to use Che as an example for the dictators, to send them this type of message: do not worry, you can always hide in Cuba if things gets ugly. Other than that reason for the documentary, I agreed with every single comment from Hank. I consider myself one of the victims of the communism, who grew up in Cuba as a child repeating those slogans they brain washed us/all the children that were born after the revolution: "Pioneros por el Comunismo. Seremos como el Che" (To build Communism - We will be like Che!). No thanks, I don't want to be like Che. They should display this other documentary, the other side of the story about the real Che Guevara. It is called "El otro lado de un ídolo" (the other side of an idol) by Agustín Blázquez. The documentary has valuable testimonials from the victims of Che Guevara and witnesses of his crimes. Only the documentary supporting the cuban revolution and the story they want you to heard was shown on television. Agustin's documentary was never shown on TV, they ignored him. For those of you who wants to support the cuban revolution, after watching the documentary, please do no let them to sell you Che as an idol. The Libya relation with Che and the cuban revolution? since both regime were similar, perhaps the next question should be: could the same thing happen in Cuba? I hope so. It will be great to see a revolution in Cuba and get the Castro brothers and his family out of the power forever.

I completely agreed with you Chester_Arthur.
Lets give some Pepto-Bismol to EZK (he is another big fan of Ann Bardach) before he starts publishing non-sense comments again.
Posada Carriles was declared innocent by an US jury in a city that has not relation with Cubans from the exile so nobody can say it was not a fair trial. Additionally, he has not been convicted of the terrorist crime, so nobody should call him a terrorist because there is not proof of anything.
