OK, it's a spoof, but not all that inaccurate.

Alexander Graham Bell's not-so-great-grandson...

,,,seems to have been a spy for Cuba for three decades.
Occasionally, (Walter Kendall Myers) would voice frustration with U.S. policies, but to his liberal neighbors in Northwest D.C. it was nothing out of the ordinary.
Let's hope the liberal neighbors are wrong about that.
"I have become so bitter these past few months. Watching the evening news is a radicalizing experience," he wrote in his diary in 1978, referring to what he described as greedy U.S. oil companies, inadequate health care and "the utter complacency of the oppressed" in America.
Brainwashing by the statists does that to the oppressed: That's what edikashun is for.
On a trip to Cuba, federal law enforcement officials said in legal filings, Myers found a new inspiration: the communist revolution.
Yep: No oppressed under Communism in Cuba. No sirree, Che.
David P. Calleo, director of European studies at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, a friend of Myers for nearly 40 years (said) "He has this amazing intellectual curiosity. He is open to all kinds of ideas."
Except, apparently, that free market capitalism and democracy might be better than communism and firing squads for dissidents.
Myers, who goes by Kendall, grew up in Washington, the eldest of five children. His father, Walter, was a renowned heart surgeon; his mother, Carol, was the daughter of Gilbert H. Grosvenor, the longtime former president of the National Geographic Society, and was the granddaughter of inventor Alexander Graham Bell.
Alexander Graham Bell was into communications. I guess his great-grandson just followed in his footsteps.
