In the United States, memories are notoriously short, and so the story
of the two defecting Cuban boxers is long forgotten for most people by
now. Probably this is because they "undefected" after they supposedly
HAD defected, and then returned voluntarily to the island to face the
music, as we say in the U.S. There were and there are more than a few
unanswered questions in this story, and Robinson doesn't try to answer
them. Time will do that, or it won't. At a time when media pundits all
over are speculating about Cuba's future, often with nothing or nearly
nothing to go on, this article is a timely reminder of the many ways
Cuba is simply DIFFERENT than other places, because it's a place where
the almighty dollar doesn't decide everything. You'll enjoy this one.
