Get out your red pens
So, there are press reports that a bunch of neo-red-scare-artist-types have signed a letter to President Obama asking for the release of the five Cuban spies convicted here in the SDFla a while back. The problem is I can’t find a report about this that doesn’t ultimately trace back to Granma, the official news organ of the Cuban government. So, I don’t know whether to believe that these people are comunistas or victims of a comunista smear campaign. Either way, here are their names: Miguel Bosé, Juanes, Olga Tañón, Sean Penn, Benicio del Toro, Ry Cooder, Pete Seeger, Bonnie Raitt, Oliver Stone, Martin Sheen, Susan Sarandon, Danny Glover, and Ed Asner (“Oh, Mr. Grant, how could you?”). There’s a bunch more, but I got tired.
