I never had any objection to the things that Walter writes about Cuba, 
which are enriched by his first-hand experience. But let me remind you of 
why I am so testy around these questions. We had a flame war about a month 
ago about Evo Morales. I don't like flame wars. I have tried to put these 
sorts of questions on the back burner for the time being, but I feel they 
are being re-raised under new packaging with Bachelet, etc. I simply don't 
understand why Walter can't drink a glass of cold water and hold off on 
these questions for an extended period. Latin America will not sink into 
the Pacific Ocean if he does, I can assure him.
