Several Cuban dissidents were freed by the Communist dictatorship last week after many years and much suffering in prison. Four of them were exiled to Spain; this piece of news got a mention in the Spanish papers on Thursday.

However, the Spanish press--and I checked La Vanguardia, El Periodico, El Mundo, El Pais, and Publico--didn't bother reporting on the dissidents' press conference, which was held right here in Barcelona.

The Daily Telegraph did. Check out the photograph of the man showing the bone that Castro's torturers broke, and then denied him medical treatment for. What a disgrace.

Oh, yeah, Raul got elected president. Unanimously. Of course, he was the only candidate.
