First Place in Stupidity / Juan Juan Almeida

In an interview given last week to the daily Juventud Rebelde, the minister Maria Esther Reus launched the very–in capital letters–absurd thesis that “the deficiencies in legal education are a problem now because there was never a need keep people informed about the laws that govern them.”

Truly, nothing can better illustrate for us the legal ineffectiveness of a system than the words of this minister of justice.  Or is it injustice?  And she said it without the least trace of shame.
