Personally, I was glad that Elian
was rescued from those lunatic
rightist kidnappers and soon able
to return to his home in Cuba.

So Laura, if I may ask with
respect, why don't you belong
to this organization? For me,
departure was involuntary but
may I ask why you aren't in?

Weep? Hardly! I stand proud of this
meticulous and accurate analysis, as
it completely makes sense in context
of the existing relationship of forces
during that event. If I weep, it's out of
joy that such a class conscious
organization exists.
