Sticking it to a monster

I did not have a particular rooting interest in the just completed World Series, both teams made good cases for my support. Congratulations to the long suffering Southsiders, who had not been in a Series in my lifetime and had fixed one more recently than they had won one, and my sympathies to the also long suffering Astros fans, who had not been in a Series in their history and lost each game in painful fashion.

Given the outcome, one overlooked aspect stands out: it warms the heart to know that included among the victors were two defectors from the hell on earth that is Fidel's Cuba. Stick that in your gulag and torture it, el Presidente.
