What's worse than a hole-in-the-head? A Bay of Pigs Museum in Miami
The last thing Miami needs is a Bay of Pigs museum. County commissioners voted unanimously yesterday to study a proposal to build one on bayfront land that was promised to be held in perpetuity as an open space park to voters. Now there is talk about building not only a museum to a lost cause and one of America's most embarrassing moments but also a multi-story parking garage which the museum would sit on. This monstrosity to bad taste and broken promises would be built behind the American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat. MVB understands how this could happen what with the political pressure exerted by the exile community, but it still disappoints us to no end when we see not one elected official question the merits of such an asinine plan. Someone representing the "other public" should have said "No way, Jose! Build it in Cuba at the original site when you get around to freeing your homeland. Leave what's left of our public bayfront land to us."
