Kcho, whoever he is...
"Kcho, who has close ties to the Cuban government..."
Gets you anything you want...
the director of "Men in Stockings" and "Hunt & Plunge" told

That's why god created sinks! - HH
I may starve, but I sure won't freeze... And a mule still makes for pretty reliable transportation.. and communications are through drug induced telepathy..

Coming from an American... That's... interesting...
