Another Side to Cuba Story

RECEIVED Tue., Aug. 9, 2005

Dear Editor,
    Re: “Long Arm of the Bush Administration Touches Cuba Caravan” [News, July 29]. The law breakers taking unlawful articles to the communist dictatorship in the island of Cuba, where a repressive and murderous regime reigns, should count themselves lucky that they were allowed to proceed to the enslaved island and not taken into custody by U.S. authorities. Maybe, if they are really principled, they should protest Castro's murdering of thousands of Cubans and the many thousand of political prisoners found in the island. Unless they do this, their "principles" are highly in doubt.
    The Austin Chronicle should let people know in the article about the repressive dictatorship of Castro, and that many people would leave there in flimsy boats and inner tubes rather than suffer under the hated dictator.
