Who needs free speech when you have the revolution? 

In the Village Voice, Nat Hentoff takes the American Library Association to task for not condemning Castro's imprisonment of Cuba's librarians. The ALA is refusing to support the Cuban librarians because they're not "professional librarians". Seriously. I guess, in the grand scheme of things, free speech isn't that important when it's compared to something like accreditation.
