A Half-Helping of Crow

Yesterday, I complained about the coverage of Cuba in the Christian Science Monitor. Today on Babalu, Val apprises us of quite a different article in said paper. In addition, there is a rather moving article on an independent library, a subject near and dear to my heart. So, well done.

Frankly, that is all I ask. While I can spot the fallacies in yesterday's entries, they are at least balanced by the tenor of today's. It would be nice if it were all accurate, but as human beings we are fallible. What would have been even nicer would have been to have both published on the same day, but to get even a smidge of truth in the MSM media is progress.

Of course, some of the quoted individuals are anti-embargo activists, but as they refrained from commenting on same, it was honky dory. Have to wonder if they paper knew their position, though.
