ALA's Castro Lobby

In the fourth and final installment of his series on ALA and Cuba, Walter Skold discusses the clique of radical leftists on ALA Council who have prevented that body from forcefully condemning Fidel Castro's suppression of intellectual freedom:

It is understandable when leading Cuban librarians obediently sing the praises of their island’s owner; it is reprehensible when American librarians, living in freedom, do the same thing.

In particular, the article provides some useful background information on my new friend Mark Rosenzweig. Walter exposes in far more detail than I could just how bad things have become in ALA.
