My apologies for the dearth of posts. I have a lot of things going on in my life which have captured my time. But I thought this item
deserved mention because I haven't heard much about it in the press:Castro’s ‘Last Visit’ To Central Park:‘Deathbed Portrait’ of Fidel as Humanitarian Goes on Display in N.Y.
NEW YORK, NY (October 24, 2006) – An unveiling in Central Park of Fidel Castro on his ‘deathbed’ may be the last opportunity to say ‘farewell’ to the man some revere as a champion of civil rights. “Fidel Castro’s Deathbed Portrait,” described as a colossal portrait of a solemn Castro at rest, will be unveiled at 10:00 am November 8th, just north of the monument for Cuban poet, José Martí.
Inspiration for the gilded head of Castro, large enough to belong to a 25 foot man, comes from Harlem, New York’s acclamation for Castro’s contributions to civil rights
(emphasis mine). “Harlem is perhaps the only community in the U.S. that proclaims an admiration for Castro - the Central Park unveiling of his portrait is an attempt to bring Harlem’s adoration for Castro to the rest of the world,” said a spokesman for the unveiling.
Have we really slipped this far into insanity? Contribution to civil rights? Was it for jailing homosexual because of their deviancy? Was it for executing political opponents> Was it for jailing reporters? Do tell.
