I am happy that Cristina won. But the article from Havana does not
give her -nor her husband's- full record (raison d'état, I presume).
I hope I can write a good report on these elections, and send it to
the lists, soon.
In any case, I will write something in Spanish. If someone is
interested in a translation, just contact me.
