Friends of Cuban Libraries writes "From Nat Hentoff's new article: 'Because I have joined a growing number of American librarians who strongly disagree with the [ALA] governing Council's disinclination to offend the Cuban dictator, I have been targeted by Eliades Acosta, director of Cuba's National Library... Acosta asked accusingly, "What does Mr. Hentoff know of the real Cuba?"'My answer to him: "I know that if I were a Cuban, I'd be in prison."'For the text of Nat Hentoff's article, refer to the Recent News section of www.friendsofcubanlibraries.org"
