GD> What did we get in the western hemisphere a communist county less then

DS>You do need to fact check your statements. Key West to Havana is just
DS>over 90 miles, and Key West is not the coast of Florida -- that is even
DS>further away.


TR> Wow! He made a *ten* mile mis-statement!


DS>No, because of his sloppy language, he was off by a factor of two. The
DS>closest point from the Florida coast to Cuba is Havana to the
DS>Everglades, which is more than twice what he claimed.


He said "...less than 80.." you said "....90...."!


Do the math!
