Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 11/9/2015

I almost cannot believe it's already November. This year has passed so quickly and soon it will be time to make some new year's resolutions for 2016. One of those resolutions no doubt will involve presidential politics. I am alternately excited as well as disgusted by the Democratic race so far and attempts to make Hillary Clinton, who really is a piece of work, an inevitable candidate.

Economic Development nonprofit was run by swindlers.

So is Ted Cruz's father the next up to be full of baloney?

An old neighbor remembers soldiers bloodying the 18-year-old Mr. Cruz’s face and driving off with him that summer. Mr. Cruz gives a harrowing account of soldiers beating him over three or four days, stomping on the back of his head and breaking his teeth. A mug shot in his son’s book shows him with a bruised nose, and a 1959 article in The Daily Texan, the student newspaper at the University of Texas at Austin, which he attended after fleeing to the United States, reported he had lost “half of his upper denture” in the beatings.

The reason Mr. Cruz was arrested, however, is less clear, and he has offered different explanations. In an interview alongside his son in March, Mr. Cruz said he had sought to recruit to the revolutionary cause someone who turned out to be an informant working for Batista’s regime. The 1959 account, though, did not mention any informant; Rafael Cruz said then that the authorities were alerted to his involvement in the resistance by another man, who gave up only Mr. Cruz’s name after Batista’s forces beat it out of him and left him bleeding in the same cell as Mr. Cruz.
