Saturday's LA Times reaction to a speech by Fidel the day before, which focused mindlessly on Fidel's uniform, was an AP story without a by-line, which probably means it was written in America very slightly using some dissident's detail-free e-mail from Havana as an excuse to rehash a tired line.
Besides a photo cut-line you'd do well to cross out, which declares that "his choice of dress suggests that he may be seeking to return to a bigger political role," readers are Continue
American can go to
Cuba as his own reporter

2002 tour of Cuba, I surveyed 100 random Cubans about a petition reportedly
signed by 98% of eligible voters to lock socialism into their constitution

logically, it should be Cuba that censures the other countries, since
only Cuba is free of a significant list of oppressive attributes found
everywhere else, as these documents attest.
