Re: “The Martyr and the Stool Pigeon

Mr Miner,

I couldn't agree more with your conclusion that "it is very difficult to bring this story alive." While it is important to inform your U.S. readers of the goings-on in Cuba, your description of the place amounts to a jumble of name-droppings and a patchwork of personal and public recollections. You try to make too many points and end up making none. I suspect your motivation to write this article consisted of a desire to tell Chicago that you were friended by Mr Orrio. Considering your position at the Reader, you should feel responsible to contribute substantive articles.
