Anyone remember Elian?

Ok, I see your eyes rolling, so I know you do.

Val over at Babalu Blog has a 'behind the scenes' post about Elian.

Like about 279 million Americans I was only interested because of the spokes-babe.
I ->know<- I should be interested, because Cuba is a fully functioning Communist enclave 90 miles to the south of us-the US. It just- somehow- seems - so- remote- from- anything, that it's hard to get our back up anymore, , , I guess.

For Val and the rest of the Cuban refugees, it's PERSONAL.
It made me realize/ remember they're freedom loving Cubans- not 'Mexicans from the islands'.

Go read his posts, it makes it more personal.
