I understand that Murphy is also a finalist in the 2005 Jorge Mas Canosa 
competition for the most bodacious slander against the Cuban revolution. 
After he announced to alt.politics.socialism.trotsky that Cuban helicopters 
were dropping sandbags on rafts in order to capsize them and drown all on 
board, I challenged him to produce a source. After this nitwit failed to 
produce anything, I told him that this tidbit came from the Black Book of 
Communism. Murphy is a rightwing social democrat and that's that. Poor 
Isaac Deutscher must be turning over in his grave.
