Anyone remember Magda Montiel Davis, the lawyer who kissed Castro on his cheeks (I should point out she may have been caught on video kissing him on his facial cheeks, but she’s been kissing him on his other cheeks ever since, if you know what I mean).
The St. Pete Times has done a fluff piece on her and how, boo-hoo, sniff, sniff, she had lost a friend over kissing Castro. Eventually, they resumed their friendship, but the threat of losing her friend didn’t stop Davis from kissing Castro’s nether regions some more:
With the storm still raging, Davis quietly returned to Cuba on a humanitarian visa four months later – a trip that was the first of many over the next decade. On those trips, she and Castro developed a cordial relationship.
Oh, isn’t that so quaint. I wonder if she visited the prisons where political prisoners and journalists are held. Or El ParedÃ³n, site of so many summary executions after Castro and his henchmen seized power. Or the site of two unarmed Cessna aircraft being shot down over INTERNATIONAL waters simply because they released fliers. Or the site of the sinking of the tugboat “13 de Marzo” (13th of March).
