Goldblog Media Alert

I'll be on the Diane Rehm Show this morning with Julia Sweig, talking about Fidel. And then I'll be busy getting ready for my interview with Juan Peron, so blogging will be light today. (I have other things to do today apart from interviewing Peron, such as my media-conspiracy Torah study group.) But I will post the next installment of the Fidel Diaries soon. Before I do that, however, I will answer some reader e-mail, especially from the several hundred Cuban-Americans who have written to call me a Communist sympathizer. It's been quite a deluge, actually. I wish that I had more experience with the phenomenon of Florida-based ethnocentric foreign policy lobbying. At least then I would be prepared for this.

I will also, as promised, get around to summing up the last month's Iran-Israel debate, and I will  grapple, as Fallows already has, with the Marty Peretz controversy.  And I will also, before Yom Kippur, detail my mini-van.
