Thanks Ollie, for posting the message. I've had a number of responses. In
fact I found a couple of mistakes in that message and send you a new version
I send warmest greetings to all, and assure you that my association with
you in OCS was an experience I've never forgotten. As everyone knows I
didn't make a career in the USAF. And as I recently wrote Jack Walsh, life
has had its ups and downs for me as for anyone. I've lived in lots of places
from Latin America to Paris, London, Amsterdam, Hamburg and Havana.
25 years, after 12 in the CIA, have been hyper-active with research, writing
books and articles, teaching in university, lecturing in Europe and America
(including 100's in the States), and now at 65 trying to start a little
business for travel to Cuba. Over the years I've had a trainload of media
reports condemning me with false or misleading accusations, my US passport
was revoked in 1979, I was expelled from 5 NATO countries under US pressure,
and for all I know they'll now indict me in Washington under the Trading
with the Enemy Act.
Happily both my sons are university graduates and computer professionals in
New York City. They make their way under their own steam and with much
success. My second marriage (22 years on Monday) is to a classical ballet
dancer from New York when we met, and who is now becoming a free-lance
ballet mistress teaching mostly European companies. As for health, I've had
an aneurysm of the aorta and prostate cancer, both completely cured by
surgery. I'll spare everybody the grimy details of this life---they're
mostly in my books---and simply say I'm glad I'm still around to challenge
what I've thought for a long time is not fair.
I imagine there are those members of 58B who disapprove of what I have done.
anyone of you out there is curious about this fascinating country, and want
to visit, check out www.cubalinda.com and get in touch.
Best to all,
