Editor’s note: One of the primary and most important purposes of this site is to try to encourage journalists who write about Cuba to contact Cubans living on the island as primary sources; that is, to report what CUBANS think about what is going on in CUBA (in preference, especially, to non-Cuban foreign “experts”).

Happily, with this article, in the New York Times, journalist Damien Cave did just that. Thank you Damien, and thank you New York Times.
