Elian Gonzalez, Ten Years Later

So yesterday I'm flipping through the NY Daily News at lunch and when a photo caught my eye I thought, "Oh, who's that handsome lad?" It was Elian Gonzalez, now 16 years old and still a Cuban hero ten years after his Miami custody battle gripped both nations. Elian's birthday is a national holiday in Cuba, with parades held in his honor. Today he's a member of the Young Communists, hence the PR blitz from the Cuban government.
