: : : I really don't care about idealogoy in this case--just what is best for the kid.

: No thats your strong desire to call people who dont fall on their knees in agreement with you a 'git'.

*Hence I didn't answer *this* because it was just so much drool from a guy who starts off running down a man he admits not knowing anything about with bland insinuation, ignores the facts regarding the mother and stepfather which we do know, demands evidence of the father's fitness as a parent which isn't based on 'hearsay' testimony, declares the startling lack of Haitian immigrants as proof positive of how bad things are in Cuba and then, in the end, with checkmate pending, declares his disdain for the embargo which *by design* is causing the hardships which Cubans are enduring. As any child can tell you Gee, you cannot have your cake once you've already eaten it.* --K
