RIP former Senator George Smathers

Only reason I take note of this is because of Boston Globe reporter Matt Sedensky's semi-dismissal of one of the late Senator's better qualities:

...his expertise on Latin America made him an early advocate for the people of that region, if for nothing more than to quash communism's expansion.

Putting the "quash" on communism was a better service to Latin Americans than anything the Che shirt wearing, Cuba vacationing, Voices of Compassion© ever did. Someday Cuba's dungeons will open, Miami's Cuban boat people will get recompense for their stolen land and property, and the mass graves will be exhumed--and it won't be the anti-communist norteamericanos who'll have to account for themselves to them.
