The Fun Begins
Before proceeding to Vallejo with Angie to show her the buildings, I said to her, “Our objective is to get Castro out of Cuba.” Angie immediately became alarmed and frantic. Then she stormed out of my trailer, while yelling that I had been drinking too much hooch—which was true.
Evidently, she must have run straight to the cops and ratted on me, which resulted in me being under surveillance for at least three days. Officials must have deduced that I was part of an international team of rouge guerrillas and assassins out to overthrow the Castro regime—similar to the Bay of Pigs attempt.
Since I was living in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, and I became under suspicion of being a sympathizer with anti-Castro Cuban exiles, I saw it fitting to refer to these chapters as the East Bay of Pigs parts 1 and 2.
The following brief is from the Oracle Think Quest Team 11046, Education Foundation:
Bay of Pigs: The Bay of Pigs Invasion was an unsuccessful attempt by United States-backed Cuban exiles to overthrow the government of the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Increasing friction between the U.S. government and Castro’s leftist regime led President Dwight D. Eisenhower to break off diplomatic relations with Cuba in January 1961. Even before that, however, the Central Intelligence Agency had been training anti-revolutionary Cuban exiles for a possible invasion of the island. The invasion plan was approved by Eisenhower’s successor, John F. Kennedy. . . . On April 17, 1961 about 1300 exiles, armed with U.S. weapons, landed at the Bahía de Cochinos (Bay of Pigs) on the southern coast of Cuba. Hoping to find support from the local population, they intended to cross the island to Havana. It was evident from the first hours of fighting, however, that the exiles were likely to lose. President Kennedy had the option of using the U.S. Air Force against the Cubans but decided against it. Consequently, the invasion was stopped by Castro’s army. By the time the fighting ended on April 19, 90 exiles had been killed and the rest had been taken as prisoners.

Unbeknown to me at the time I was on the verge of becoming under suspicion for being tied to a plot that would make an ideal script for an Ian Fleming 007 feature film. Within the next few days authorities would question me about my knowledge of the JFK assassination, and any other knowledge I may have about attempts to overthrow the Castro regime, by either the Mob or the CIA.
