    Presidential Pretender In "Chronicle of a Friendship Fore- told" (March/April 2003), Fidel Cas- tro mentions that he was in Bogotai, Colombia, at the same time that Gabriel Garcia Marquez was there in 1948. But unlike the Colombian writer, Castro went to Bogotai to dis- rupt the inter-American meeting tak- ing place in that city. The Argentine dictator Juan Domingo Per6n paid for Castro's trip, during which the young Cuban revolutionary distrib- uted anti-U.S. propaganda and par- ticipated in the violence that rocked Colombia in 1948.

    Referring to Castro, as the edi- tors do, as president of Cuba is a travesty. He is no more president of Cuba than Saddam Hussein was president of Iraq. Dictators should be referred to by their proper titles.
