Cafe Hayek: Friend of Elian

Russell Roberts, writing at the Cafe Hayek blog, excerpts and links to the Jeff Jacoby column in which Jacoby takes CBS to task for its gushy 60 minutes segment on Elian Gonzalez, the little boy handed back to Castro after his mother died trying to get to the United States. Roberts also says:

If you have any romance left in your heart for Castro, read Against All Hope or Waiting for Snow in Havana. The former is chilling and deserved to be read to honor the courage of its author and his prison mates. The latter is a magical book about growing up that also tells of what Castro was really about as almost an afterthought. It is one of the finest books I have read in the last ten years.
