Val is the BlogDaddy

H/T to El Confeti and to Uncommon Sense for carrying the story, otherwise I would've missed. In my case, now I have a face to add to the words and to the voice. Read Val's story as reported by Miami Herald reporter Jenniffer Piedra here.

I was going to write a comment on it, but I wouldn't do Marc's semblanza justice. Here is Marc's commentary.

In the short time I have been blogging about Cuba-related issues, I have come to rely on Babalu for tips and ideas for my own postings. What blogger Val Prieto may lack in journalistic experience, he makes up for with passion, wit and a uncompromising love for his homeland that help make Babalu daily must-read for me and anyone else who wants to learn more about the Cuban experience in America. He and other bloggers writing about Cuba — including, hopefully, yours truly — have the potential to truly change the world by raising awareness and focusing attention on the great tragedy taking place 90 miles from our shores.

Here is to you Blog Daddy!!!!!
