I'm famous, well sort of.

An Associated Press article about the enduring lure of Che Guevara is starting to come out in several newspapers around the country. I was interviewed and for and quoted in the article and already the hate mail has started to come in. Makes me smile. Anyway here's a link to the article.

And here's a picture the Associated Press photographer took of me which is running in some of the newspapers where the story is running. By the way that's a Bay of Pigs Veterans hat I'm wearing.

Felicidades, Henry. Al fin!!!! Alguien habla la verdad y defiende el honor cubano...y expone al Che como lo que es: un asesino inmisericorde y un destructor de lo que fue Cuba.

Congratulations, Henry! At last!! Someone that speaks the truth and defends Cuban honor...and exposes Che Guevara for what he is: a merciless murderer and a destroyer of what Cuba once was.

Felicidades! The ones with hate mail are the idiots who don't know who Che really was. Amazing how ignorant Americans have such strong opinions about something they know nothing about.

¡Felicidades! Que lleguemos a una Cuba LIBRE!

Do you know what other newspapers around the country this article is being published? Living in Maryland, I hope it will run in the WASHINGTON (COM)POST or the BALTIMORE SUN. Do post the hate mail on your site. I get a kick out of these ignorant looney tunes. As is said in hebrew, Henry, you've got "chutzpah"! :o)

I just wish the reporter interviewed more people who are informed as you are as to who Che really was.

I bought it at Cuba Nostalgia the art and culture show we have here every year. The Bay of Pigs veterans have a booth and they were selling them to raise money for their new museum. I didn't see a link for merchandise at their web site:

But maybe you can call and find out.
