Over the many decades of reading The Miami Herald, I have applauded and cringed at many stories, Jim Morin’s editorial cartoons and editorials. The investigative reporting in particular has been an irreplaceable asset to this community. However, the March 9 headline and photo, Final Salute, was so offensive that I have to condemn it and the judgment of the editors in approving it.
Posting a photo of a monster like Raúl Castro saluting another tyrant like a hero had to drive a stake in the hearts of the many Miami victims of these two criminals. To glorify them and send them off into the history books with that image was as bad an insult as I’ve ever seen.
