They might try a bluer shade next time. Obviously that green color is too easily visible at sea.

I suggest they see about getting something in a Corvette Sting Ray, preferably one with a fiberglas body, to minimize the radar silhouette. But those may not be readily available in Cuba.

A Corvette? For high Party officials only! The proletariat must be content with trucks and passenger cars. Sports cars are decadent!

Too bad they don't have any '70s muscle cars. A 'Cuda migt have the hp to get past the Coastie Patrol. Not that I mind those boys doing a good job....

As George Patton probably didn't really say, "Anybody that eloquent deserves to be rescued".

The way I see it, these guys have way too much style to stay in the Southern Minors. The are ready for Prime Time.

If they had a 1955 or '56 Carribean, I'd pay their legal fees.

Damn, they let in terrorists and guys who can barely hold a job picking lettuce, but these inventive and determined people keep getting turned back?

I thought Castro shot folks who tried to escaped...or maybe thats just his own army/military/police guys.

I can't believe the Coast Guard isn't towing these guys to the florida
surf-line and cutting them loose.

Are we sure that this isn't a PhotoShopped fake?

It killed me to hear that the coasties sank the pickup after pulling everyone off. They cited that it was a hazard to navigation. Hell, I'm sure there are quite a few people who would volunteer to tow it to shore if they could keep it. I know I would love to have a pickup like that (minus the pontoons).

James: You doubt Reuters and AP?
