I WAS READING this piece by Roger Cohen in tomorrow's New York Times Magazine on Cuba and the Obama factor. Started alright, interesting, until I got to this but of bullsh*t in page 3 (bolding is mine)
The city is dimly lighted, but one of Fidel’s achievements, along with an impressive education system and universal health care, is security.
At this point I stopped reading. Why waste any more time? This canard is like a disqualifying foul: everytime I find it in a piece, I know it's simply time to put that piece aside and move on. Call it "Jose's Law", Godwin's Law relative.
