[No, relax, we are not closing shop. That's usually what "A Note to Our Readers" has come to mean recently in the galaxy of the blogosphere that we inhabit. In fact, we are expanding not imploding. I make this clarification at the onset lest the next paragraph be read as a valedictory].
In March of last year we founded the Review of Cuban-American Blogs. We will spend this entire month celebrating its first anniversary by recounting its victories over obscurantism over the past year which have benefitted all Cuban-themed blogs and especially the one to which we have devoted the most attention. For now let us just say that we are proud of all that RCAB has achieved and look forward to another year of serving the Cuban-American blogosphere. The truth can only increase by telling it and we are determined to tell more of it than anybody else.
Today we are inaugurating a new feature at RCAB. Since week-ends are always a slow period at all blogs, we are literally taking a page from the Sunday newspapers and stuffing our own digital newspaper not with advertisements but with the casual light reading which readers favor on Sunday mornings. Our version of light will certainly never be "lite," but will, we hope, expand the Cuban experience beyond the last 50 years and allow us even to laugh when nothing in the present does. Laughter is good for the soul and as my mother used to say, "Recordar es volver a vivir."
You will find the first installment in RCAB's new "Sunday Is Funday" feature below. Enjoy.
