This isn’t a post about Cuban baseball, though that’s an apt subject. As some of you know, one of my gigs is making websites for good books. You can see other book sites we’ve done at Booknoise.

I bring this up now because Tom’s site has been done and for some reason there has been a problem with Google indexing it. The initial issue had to do with the cloaking/forwarding service his registrar put on, and then it’s been slow going getting it into the system. It’s in there now, and I’m hoping to give it a little boost with a plug here and there. Tom is an NPR correspondent, so he has scores of stories and pages devoted to him the WWW already, something we have to overcome.

Plus, you might like the book, even if it’s about rum and politics rather than baseball.

And if you’re looking for some popular history to read, I can’t make a better recommendation, unless it’s John Capouya’s Gorgeous George.
