Quote of the Day

"I was amazed at how happy the people are, even though they are poor."

Sixteen year old Chelsea Haag, a student from Rochester in the US, after a fact-finding trip to Cuba organised by the Council on Youth Ministries of the United Methodist Church. The trip was meant to help in “dispelling myths and stereotypes”, according to this article in The Democrat and Chronicle.

Fact-finding trip, was it? I'm afraid that objective was not even remotely achieved, but then again, it all depends on which "facts" were being sought.

I just finished posting on the same quote. It screams out at you, doesn't it?
