Wow— that would have been interesting. A long dead friend— thoracic surgeon who was.... get this— at Jesuit High School in Havana— roommates with Fidel. Which did not stop, when the time came-—Che’ confiscating firearms. In my friend’s case— his father protested loudly “there are no guns here at all” repeatedly and they searched the place tearing it up— a main residence in Havana.
My friend then— out in front of the house, on the street- watched the crazed angry Che’ blow his father’s brains out— horrific and smiling while he did. Friend made it through med school in Spain and forced to come back- and practice “Russian” medicine as he called it— all sorts of cockamamie ideas...lot from Fidel (him being an expert even in medicine— NOT!) Lot of stories.... really miss this great man, survivor.
One thing: he did say “of course there really were no guns at the house- dad wasn’t lying” ... then: “we long before the revolt took them up to our place in the mtns and hid them well under the house and used them on those Bastards-— killed a hell of alot of them and they never even knew who!” The kind of guy one would want in an “uncivil” political hot war.
I can respect your friend.
