Disappearing comments

From: Larry Daley
Subject: Censoring comments on Agee Death

Peter Tira, Communications Director

Philip Agee's death, was reported about two hours ago in the Miami Herald.

At first perhaps for twenty minutes the article had a comment section; I
posted a remark saying that since Agee died of complications from an
ulcer operation, and we now know that ulcers are caused by Heliobacter
pylori (such operations are no longer common medical practice) this
reflects badly on the Cuban health system.

Almost instantaneously my response disappeared and so did the comment

One wonders once again if the editorial staff of the Miami Herald view
their function as that of reporting the news or that of protecting the
image of present Cuban system.
