"Intellectuals" Announce Support for Castro Regime

From the AP:

About 200 intellectuals, activists and artists from Latin America and elsewhere issued a letter Monday urging the top United Nations human rights watchdog to side with Cuba in an expected battle over the communist country's rights record.

...Among American signatories were actor Danny Glover, author Alice Walker and historian and activist Howard Zinn.

Yeah, yeah. Betcha they're just kissing up so that they can get one of those free pressure cookers. (See also here.)
