To get a flavour of what is passing for opinion and fact about Cuba, following is a collection of websites that present same. As my hero discovers in "Mojito" there are huge volumes of propaganda both pro-and anti-Fidel, so I've tried to not include any site that starts with a bias. This list will be ever growing, so tune in often.
