    And made them trot so quick!”
    Lewis Carroll, “The Walrus and The Carpenter,” from “Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.”

Judy Gross should remember that those spies were accessory to the shot down of the airplanes of brothers to the rescue were American and Cuban citizens died,the spies should pay for what they have done.Alan Gross should take it like a man and he should refrain from criticizing our government the way he did in the presence of the communists,our enemies.
