Focus on News, Politics, etc.

as Young Pioneer.
Prediction: Castro won't be alone in iconizing
Elian Gonzales as a "Young Pioneer.".
Politically, Castro cannot afford for Elian to be less
enthusiastic as a Young Pioneer supporter of Castro than could Hitler have
afforded to allow a famous German child to be anything less than a prominent
leader of the Hitler Youth. However, Castro won't be alone in iconizing
Elian as a heroic Young Pioneer.
Can there be any doubt that there already exist contractual
arrangements between Cuban authorities (acting nominally "on behalf"
of Elian, Juan Miguel and his family) and media moguls for a book and a movie
about Juan Miguel's heroic struggle to retrieve his son from the clutches of the
Castro-hating Miami relatives and the Castro-hating element of the Vast Right
Wing Conspiracy. Can there be any doubt that revenue from such contractual
arrangements that normally would inure to the benefit of Elian and Juan Miguel
in a free society will be paid to the Cuban government (perhaps in the form of
food, medicine and other necessities)? Can there be any doubt that such
book and movie will portray Elian's mother as a criminal who kidnapped her son
from the loving Juan Miguel to satisfy her base desires to flee to Florida with
her criminal boyfriend? Isn't it a virtual certainty that someone such as
Alex Baldwin will play Juan Miguel; that someone such as Robert Redford will
play Greg Craig; that Clinton will play himself; that someone such as Susan
Sarandon will play Janet Reno?
More to come...
*Iconize, iconization, iconizing, etc. ought to be verb-forms, so I'm taking the liberty
of making it so. It describes a process that is a non-theological
equivalent of canonization, beatification or diefication.
