I haven't been following the farce on TV so I am (blissfully) missing a
lot of the facts. But I got a question:

How did Elian's mom (and for all you Elian-protectors out there, how many
of you remember her name?) and her boyfriend died? I know that a lot of
Cuban refugees die of drowning or as shark lunch. Does the US Coast
Guards still have the policy of opening fire on refugee boats to keep them
from entering American water? So perhaps one may argue that Elian's mom
died because Americans don't welcome "illegal Aliens" into their country.
