And just who will be going on shore to work on their suntans? Huh, huh?

Yes, that really is Cuba. Nice vacation spot.

Reminds me of a few passages I've kept over the years, here is one:

Who will tell whether one happy moment of love, or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies?

~ Erich Fromm

More to the point was this one that kept me going many days:

You must not be frightened if a sadness rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen. For restiveness, like light and cloud-shadows, passes over your hands and over all you do.

You must think that something is happening to you. That life has not forgotten you. That it holds you in its hand. It will not let you fall.

I wrote that passage down from someone reading it and carried it with me for over twenty years and put it away ten years ago. I transcribed it to my computer this year.

I hope it gives comfort, Sarah.

Good points there! What is Alternet's angle in promoting Russian PR, though?

I thought Alternet was pretty goo during the Bush era, but have read them less and less after they seemed to be going CT. I will read CT to see what the current memes are, but when I see the direction some takes, I suspect they're banking on their readers being fearful and gullible.

Efficient purevyors of outrage, poutrage and propaganda! They are the bestest! But...

Have you ever watched when real time events didn't match their totally biased script on their teleprompters?

I've seen in it in real time and they go completely to pieces. They are just going along and then the feed from the real world comes in and they're wrong and the crew look to the right and the left when reality takes a turn that doesn't fit.

Like the classic Bill O'Reolly blowup on Inside Edition:

AFAIK we are out of Iraq:

Obama's place is the Oval Office:

It won't get any better than this!

Oooh! Love that pic so much!

Why would western powers back any kind of Nazi? FFS, WW2! And we're accused by the RWNJs of

backing the World Zionist Global Banksterę Cabal.

Does not compute!

This is a better video than the one I saw last night:

This one agrees with that NYT piece you mentioned:

This is much like the one saw last night, which wasn't translated:

Anyway, she may or may not be the next president or PM or whatever they call it there. It seems partly right and partly wrong that she was put in prison by the man who beat her in an election. I just don't like anything about Svododa. Not saying she is part of that group either, but they give me the creeps. Really.

Thanks for your comment.
