Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Now, he said, he prefers less attention-grabbing tactics, quietly supporting dissidents on the island from an office above a LaundromatClick here: Florida's Zeal Against Castro Is Losing Heat - New York Times
