Escape from Cuba

Even I - an avowed Yankee hater - can find it in me to cheer Yankee pitcher Jose Contreras and his family after his wife and children escaped from Cuba. The family was reunited yesterday.

Despite the insistence by many on the Irish left that Cuba is a fine place, surely they recognize that any country that people have to "escape from" cannot be all that great to live in.
