Ozzie, No Harriet, Lost in Translation

Fidel Castro, once a pitching prospect, still in the baseball news via Ozzie Guillen.

The usually fun Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has been suspended by the Marlins for comments on Fidel Castro that he (OG) says had most to do with the challenges of going from English to Spanish in several interviews.

Speaking (tangentially, needless to say) of all the above subjects, you literary types might be interested in this entrevista cubana del Ernest Hemingway, and his intimate connection to the neighboring island-nation.
