Is Babulú Dead Again?

Is Babalú dead?

I have asked that question before regarding its lack of comments. But now the matter is much more grave. It appears that no one is writing posts at Babalú anymore.

We are used to posts there that have no comments hitched to them. Babalú, after all, is the blog with more contributing editors than commenters.

But have its editors now also quit Babalú in disgust over its increasing irrelevance and unorthodoxy?

Has Babalú's "magnificent cadre of writers," as George Moneo alluded to his fellow contributors on the day he was ousted from their ranks, now refusing to march in lockstep with their generalissimos?

There are 16 of them altogether. Most editorial boards at major newspapers don't have 16 members. There are almost no blogs that do.

Yet between them they managed to put up just 7 post this weekend (2 posts consisting only of pictures without words and the other 5 each under 50 words).

Granted, week-ends are slow at most blogs but few blogs completely shut shop over week-ends.
The writing is on the wall. Or, rather, it is not.


POSTSCRIPT:

Business as usual at Babalú today (that is, practically none), but that didn't stop the dyspeptic Val from booting miramiradePalmira and erasing the comment which got her booted. Longtime commenter JackW presumed that it was he who was booted because Val's eloquent edict of eviction ("Comment deleted and asshole banned by el que más mea) followed JackW's comment. Yes, there appears to be a general panic among Babalú's commenters resembling "The Reign of Terror." And so Val, long-discredited as a censor and now a snitch, continues to preside at Babalú with the same arbitrariness in its decline as in its heyday. The fishbowl may be less populated but the shark's teeth are just as sharp.

MAT, i remember this post month back
Longfellow is Fantoma

Is this still true?

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Corgiguy:

John has already alluded to his moniker being hijacked on this blog as well as on Miami's Cuban Connection. Fantomas is the most likely culprit. There are no doubt many Longfellows (his kind of popularity inspires imitators) but the genuine article is here with us right now.

BTW, why don't you get your pic fixed? As I recall it was a gift from me to you.

LOL, what an entertaining post. :)

As the "Real John Longfellow" i must say that Mat was very accurate in his analysis of me. With a few glaring errors, but mostly accurate nonetheless.

mat, just trying to keep the cast of characters straight, is hard to know who is real or fake here anymore. fantoma seems to many faces.

MAT, you know very well that louJIF always uses the "hijacked nick" excuse when he's exercising his demons. The lithium and electroshock can only last for so long.

Otherwise, why not just get a blogger account and foreclose the issue?

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Noone:

We must respect John's autonomy. He cannot be John without it.

Speaking of hijackings, I suspect your own moniker may have been hijacked recently as your name appears in black and not in blue.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

The coming attractions at the Cuba Nostalgia Convention according to Val's latest post at Babalú:

*** "See Val cry, live and uncensored" (he cries every time he visits RCAB, live and very uncensored)

*** "See Val the Fat Ass make a pig of himself (and these are supposed to be "attractions?")

nonee moose said...

I saw that. It was mispelled, as well. but it was a cut and paste from old MCC posts. several others were c/p'd as well, including AT...

Autonomy, indeed. I can respect it, but I can be critical of it at the same time. Would that the solution to any problem were as simple as this one.

Ms Calabaza said...

iborbaci2Fantomas,
your multiple personality disorder is out of sync. Time to up the psychotropics dear. . .

You back Obama all over the blogosphere yet you deem to comment at Babalu against him.

Either you are very screwed up or you are a phoney. You go from blog to blog as "lleva y trae" and then after you throw the "proverbial" stone you hide your hand.

You were already uncovered as playing both sides and that is why you call KC and CB "chivatos". You forgot that you play, you pay.



Why don't you try to be as bold at Babalu as you are here. Today you called Vana, scum. The other day you called Manuel the lowest form of scum and you said Farinas belongs in the sewer. Let's hear you try your shenanigans at Babalu tough guy.

By the way, Mat, Vana and Farinas may not agree with you but at the very least they stick to their guns. You are like the wind. You have no shame.

Take your false outrage and sanctimonious outrage elsewhere.

Hey Val, you can disagree with Obama's point of view, without being racist against him because his skin is a "little" darker than yours.

But then again, that would be impossible for such a self-loathing Cuban such as yourself.

MaT,

I just read the post that caused Val's banning of miramira. Sheesh, what a classy response for the Editor in Chief. However, I did then read an excellent post by Cigar Mike Elite vs.Elitism where there was actually an intelligent, respectful discussion with no name calling. Check it out... What a difference. But then, I've always thought Babalu has some great folks as contributing writers I'm just amazed they don't object to Val and Henry's actions.

Donde esta mi gente?

MAYONESA Y CAFÉ

Cuando las cosas en la vida parecen demasiado, cuando 24 horas al día no son suficientes...recuerda el frasco de mayonesa y el café.

Un profesor delante de su clase de filosofía sin decir palabra tomo un
frasco grande y vacio de mayonesa y procedió a llenarlo con pelotas de golf.
Luego le preguntó a sus estudiantes si el frasco estaba lleno. Los estudiantes
estuvieron de acuerdo en decir que si.

Así que el profesor tomo una caja llena de
canicas y la vació dentro del frasco de mayonesa. Las canicas llenaron los espacios
vacíos entre las pelotas de golf. El profesor volvió a preguntar a los estudiantes si el frasco estaba lleno, ellos volvieron a decir que si.

Luego...el profesor tomo una caja con arena y la vació dentro del frasco.
Por supuesto, la arena lleno todos los espacios vacíos, así que el profesor pregunto nuevamentesi el frasco estaba lleno. En esta ocasión los estudiantes respondieron con un 'si' unánime.

El profesor enseguida agrego 2 tazas de café al contenido del frasco y efectivamente llenótodos los espacios vacíos entre la arena. Los estudiantes reían en esta ocasión.

Cuando la risa se apagaba, el profesor dijo: QUE SE DEN CUENTA QUE ESTE FRASCO REPRESENTA LA VIDA'
Las pelotas de golf son las cosas importantes,como Dios, la familia, los hijos, la salud, los amigos, todo lo que te apasiona. Son cosas, que aún si todo lo demás lo perdiéramos y solo éstas quedaran, nuestras vidas aún estarían llenas.

Las canicas son las otras cosas que importan, como el trabajo, la casa, el auto, etc.

La arena es todo lo demás, las pequeñas cosas. 'Si ponemos la arena en el frasco primero, no habría espacio para las canicas ni para las pelotas de golf. Lo mismo ocurre con la vida'.

Si gastamos todo nuestro tiempo y energía en las cosas pequeñas, nunca tendremos lugar para las cosas realmente importantes presta atención a las cosas que son cruciales para tu felicidad. Juega con tus hijos, tomate tiempo para asistir al doctor, ve con tu pareja a cenar, practica tu deporte o afición favorita.

Siempre habrá tiempo para limpiar la casa y reparar la llave del agua. Ocúpate de las pelotas de golf primero, de las cosas que realmente importan. Establece tus prioridades, el resto es solo arena.

Uno de los estudiantes levantó la mano y pregunto que representaba el café. El profesor sonrió y dijo: 'Que bueno que lo preguntas... Sólo es para demostrarles, que no importa cuan ocupada tu vida pueda parecer, siempre hay lugar para un par de tazas de café con un amigo.'

Struggle, what struggle?

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Anonymous:

You give Babalú too much undeserved credit.

Henry once got the bright idea that Oscar Biscet should run for president of Cuba from his jail cell against Fidel Castro under the Socialist "Constitution." Henry even appointed himself Biscet's voluntary campaign manager. The only problem was that he never bothered to inform Biscet. When news reached Biscet's wife in Havana, she begged Henry to desist immediately because he was going to get her husband killed.

I do not doubt Henry's admiration for Biscet, but such is his inexpertise in Cuban affairs that his campaign to "save Biscet" would have in fact resulted in his martyrdom.

Men like Biscet must not only be protected from Castro's goons. They also need to be protected from well-wishers whose zeal on his behalf will give us another martyr, precisely what Cuba doesn't need.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,

Listen, Biscet represents everything that Mandela did. And that is freedom from an oppressive racist system.

The difference is that the South Africans (white and black) never let the world forget Mandela.

Hence, Americans, (except Cuban-Americans) supported Mandela, and took him and his cause under our wing, and making it our own.

Letting the South Africans know that, 1) no harm should come to him 2) he should be release 3) free elections must be immediately held

Henry, on this issue, is smart to inform America about this courageous Cuban who remains imprisoned.

It is tragic, that "Henry" appears to be the only Babuluer with the vision to understand the importance of Biscet.

However, due to the lack of support from other Babulu, "especially" Val, and your response. The Biscet posts from Babulu, appear to be superficial, and only from the "mouth out."


I could expect nothing less from self-loathing Cuban-Americans!!

Anonymous said...

henry and val have no cuban pride

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

Biscet would be deeply offended to be compared to Nelson Mandela.

Mandela was never declared a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International because he advocated violent means for the overthrow of the South African regime. In fact, more than advocated, since he was prosecuted as a terrorist bomber.

Biscet does not advocate the use of violence. Unlike Mandela, he has been designated a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International and is very proud of that honor.

In fact, he always makes that distinction when a well-wisher like you thinks to "compliment" him by comparing him to the terrorist Mandela, who, incidentally, is one of Castro's most influential supporters in the world and as such an enabler of Cuba's tyranny.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

LOL,


Mat, the communist Serbs labeled American forces in the Balkan Wars terrorist all the time.

Aparteid was a terrorist system, much like Fidel's communist system. Both systems using terrorism to control the masses.

I have abolutely no issues with those who employ the use of terrorist tactics to bring down a communist/aparteid type systems.

Mandela did what the Cuban exiles should have done long ago. Fight by any means necessary!!



P.S.

If this were the early days of our nation and you were an English settlor. There is no doubt that you would lablel the Native American as terrorist!! LOL



P.S.

Would you be so quick to call Biscet a terrorist, if he did employ violence against Fidelist?

nonee moose said...

Who's crying, louJIF? All I said was that you might know more spanish than you let on. Why is that offensive to you? Unless, of course, all that huffing indignation is obfuscation.

I never said only cubans should discuss Cuba issues. On the contrary, if more non-cubans would do it intelligently and sincerely, some solutions might be had to so many issues that plague us as a community, not just the four corners of the Cuba issue itself.

The Biscet posts from Babulu, appear to be superficial, and only from the "mouth out."

Throw one more cubanism, please? C'mon...

Don't worry, knowing a little spanish doesn't make you cuban. Just like your little man-crush on MAT doesn't make you a girl. Just, don't get hysterical. (You should mention this episode to your gynecologist. He might dial back the estrogen.)

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

Do I find Nelson Mandela's unconditional support for Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution cretinous and highly offensive? Of course I do. So would any Cuban with an ounce of dignity.

Do I think that Mandela's support for Castro demeans him? Yes, of course, as would his support for Hitler or Stalin.

Do I think, as Mandela obviously does, that Castro is his equal?

No.

Mandela, despite his terrorist antecedents, did not do to South Africa what Castro did to Cuba or Mugabe to Zimbabwe.

I would commend him for that except that he has endorsed the enslavement of my people.

In that sense he is no different from or better than Fidel Castro.

The irony is that Mandela would consider that a compliment.
