Gorki is out of jail!

To say he is free would be an overstatement.

A.P. Photo of Gorki being led to his trial earlier today.

Ernesto Hernandez Busto is reporting that Gorki was fined 600 pesos (about $40 U.S.) and that they changed the charge from "dangerousness" to "disobedience". Ernesto quotes Yoani Sanchez as saying that "the pressure [exerted on the regime] was worth it."

Postscript: Does this mean the going rate for the right to call fidel castro a "come pinga" has been reduced to $40 in Cuba? If so, I expect a momentous lift in remittances to the island.
