Subcomandante Henry

We extend our congratulations to Henry Louis Gómez upon his appointment today as Babalú's Managing Editor. It is a distinction long overdue since he has shaped for better or worse (well, worse anyway) Babalú's destinies over the last three years no less than Founding Editor Val Prieto.

Some may remember that a few weeks ago Henry was introduced on a Canadian (or was it Jamaican?) radio show as Babalú's "managing editor." Well, the prophecy has come to past and "The Conductor" is no longer in the caboose with Babalú's 15 other contributing writers.

Some day, perhaps, the contributing writers may be promoted en masse to contributing editors, but we don't think so: Too many bites out of the Babalunian apple leaves Val polishing a knob.

they will do anything so their business card does not show how truly insignificant they are in the land of plenty. What total failures. I do hope they list themsleves as yankees on the census , they are bringing down the curve something fierce.
project manager ? what's the other brown noser? night chocolate placement manager at the Loew's Hotel?
What a bunch of pathetic personal lives.
Anyone dare to guess the total income at any of their homes ? I am going for $50k (plus food stamps)
No wonder they dont want balseros in Miami , they get off the boat and are making twice as much and they dont speak english.Not that Castros education is that good , is that these two where way too busy in school fatenning on beer , pot and chicharrones.
Oh lordy .. project manager how frigging pathetic.
So that was the whole purpose of this exercise just to hide the fact they are a bunch of economic fracasao's

Ah, memories of that classic "I'm a cocksucker" post by Val. It may be a good idea to bring it back MAT, for all of these funny new visitors.

That's the only reason Val took him back. As we noted prior to his official rehabilitation, George was the only one who seemed to enjoy doing the Babalú [Faux] Radio Hour. It was already in extremis by the time of his return. Let us hope that he can revive it and that once again it may be able to boast 17 live listeners as in its glory days.

I meant, of course, the knob of the apple. But since that reference reminded you of RCAB's most famous post, here it is for you and all our readers to enjoy again:

POr The Associated Press
Kendall , Fla, EE.UU. — Las autoridades de Kendall intentaban averiguar quién introdujo un artefacto explosivo en un pollo crudo y lo dejó en la puerta de un reconocido blogero cubano

El capitán de policía de Kendall, Michael Rivera , dijo que un reparador de cocinas mejicano advirtió el pollo el lunes por la mañana, y que el artefacto era suficientemente fuerte para herir de gravedad a una persona.

La policía cerró la ruta al tránsito y el departamento de explosivos detonó el pollo.

No hubo heridos ni se informó de detenidos

No one has answered Val's plea for pro bono help..lol..still no comments on that post, guess the Babalunians are tired of helping and being abused, if they keep censoring and banning there will be no one left to give freely to Val.
