Excerpt from Lights Out

ANOTHER LOSS

Aunt Zoila, my mother's oldest sibling, lived with my grandparents.  On September 26, 1965, she ran the four blocks from their house to ours. 

"Papasito is having chest pains," she told us.

                                                             ***************

It's hard to believe it's been over half a century since Papasito died.  He was approximately seventy-five when he died.  As a young child he experienced Cuba's last War of Independence from Spain. He rejoiced for the birth of a republic. As a young man he experienced and took part in the building of that republic, Cuba, and saw that republic prosper until 1959. As an old man he experienced the theft of a republic when Fidel Castro stole the revolution.


Rest in Peace, Papasito.  I know you are.

This Trial Stood Out



                                              This Trial Stood Out
In Habana one of the most notorious revolutionary trials started—the trial of Jesús Sosa Blanco, a well-known colonel under Batista. As in all the other trials, the jury was a revolutionary military tribunal composed of three judges. A lot of people, including many Cuban and foreign reporters, attended the trial, which turned into a circus. Spectators shouted vile comments at the accused, and Sosa Blanco was summarily found guilty and executed. Many others were treated as unfairly, but his trial stood out because the sham was so publically displayed, a clear indication that a dictatorship was forming under which no one would get a fair trial. Ironically, two years after Sosa Blanco’s trial, Sorí Marín, one of the judges who presided at Sosa’s trial, was accused of treason by Fidel and was executed. Another of the judges escaped Cuba to avoid Marín’s fate. This trial set a precedent for all trials to come.
