After having the Babalunians guess his position on the "Wet Foot/Dry Foot" Policy for 124 comments over 2 days — a puzzle that would have stumped the Sphinx — Val Prieto, thirteen years and thousands of interdictions after the fact, promises to publicly reveal his real, true, honest to goodness position on it. Having already taken every imaginable position except opposing it, it will remain anybody's guess what he might come up with. We can only be sure of two things: that whatever position Val takes will be the most deleterious to Cubans on the island, and that Val will write not a single word of his "screed" until he has anticipated every objection that I might raise and tried his best to sweep them under the rug. This is going to take forever; but regardless, I promise to deconstruct every word of the finished product: the most thorough analytical vivisection in history. Let that be an additional incentive for him to do his best (not that it will matter).
We will keep you apprised of any announcements from the mountain top.
