Humberto Fontova was born in Havana, Cuba. He and his family of 5 attempted to leave in 1961, but only 4 of them were successful. Humberto Fontova Sr. (author's father) was grabbed by the milicianos. He yelled to Esther (mother) and the 3 kids (Humberto age 7, Patricia age 8, and Enrique age 5) to "Go ahead!....Whatever happens to me, I don't want ya'll growing up here!" The next day, from a cousin's house in Miami, Esther called Cuba and found out that Humberto Sr. was in La Cabana, firing squad central where 2100 men and boys were murdered. Humberto Sr. stayed there for 3 months and then was released and returned to his family in New Orleans.
History records few propaganda campaigns as phenomenally successful or enduring as Castro and Che’s. The Longest Romance exposes the full scope of this deception; it documents the complicity of major U.S. media players in spreading Castro’s propaganda and in coloring the world’s view of his totalitarian regime. Castro’s cachet as a celebrity icon of anti-Americanism has always overshadowed his record as a warmonger, racist, sexist, Stalinist, and godfather of modern terrorism. The Longest Romance uncovers this shameful history and names its major accomplices.
We look at a couple of stories: The US Marine in Mexico and Mayor Julian Castro leaving San Antonio and joining the Obama administration.

Time to go bottoms up in the Toronto Blue Jays' farm system... starting from the Rookie-level in the Gulf Coast League and working our way upward to Triple-A. We'll talk Max Pentecost, Roberto Osuna and Sean Reid-Foley with Chris King of Baseball Prospectus; hear about the latest progress made by the streaking Bluefield Blue Jays; herald the exploits of young Miguel Castro, the Northwest League Pitcher of the Week; and much more on our way around the Jays' organization with the radio voices of Toronto's MiLB affiliates.
Pew poll proves Democrat Party leaders are out of touch radicals; Obama knew the VA was ‘cooking the books’ and did nothing; The VA's failures are endemic to government-run health care; Harry (G)Reid receives $5 million from leftist billionaire; Howard Dean excommunicates conservatives; and Julian Castro’s star continues to rise — as his city plods along; and it’s liberals, not conservatives, who romanticize the past.
