Jennifer Ortiz seems like a beautiful and intelligent person and I applaud her for this effort as a fellow Cuban-American,The book is a photographic capsule in time,the book is black and white. However, it seems she may be part of my generation (the bad part-liberal),because she slams a fellow exile in one of the pages and labels him a criminal in the photo caption. She probably is depending on her sources(Miami Herald,New York Times or Tass to Cubans) . Apparently the word freedom fighter never appeared in her lexicon. Maybe we will have a Cuban Miami Book that is completely Apolitical and not full of the same biased views I certainly hope so. The book captures the Best Generation (1960's one half of my parents the other being El Mariel)before post-1980 refs came here and gave Cubans a bad name with their vulgarity and indifference to communism only to send back to a murderous regime money. I count myself lucky for not buying the hype of my generation and I applaud TRUE exiles who have fought for freedom.
