Time for the US to lift our embargo as well...
The artistry and heritage (as well as resilience) of the Cuban people is nothing short of amazing, and Castros government holds no threat to the American people in this day and age.

My sister has possession of a giant box of photographs my grandparents took..many were in Cuba in the late 20's and early 30's as they loved to travel there from NY for vacations..
Unfortunately that came to an end with the Morro Castle disaster in which my grandfather perished...

Times are changing out of economic desperation. If it was not for relaxed tourism controls, Cuba would be in a deeper mess than it is today.
I know several Cubans who had to leave during the revolution. These are the proud Cubans who regard America as their home, yet, understandably, remember the life they were forced to leave.

PBS aired a show on Cuba the other evening. Showed the mostly unspoiled land, still being farmed by small familiy farmers with oxen. Their rich biodiversity and wildlife are still there, not developed away. Millions of migratory birds use their wetlands. Cuba need not make the mistakes of the past, they can grow in a sustainable way.

Noted, Thank you Cal.

I cannot be more amused. So many who complain about communist Cuba are the very same who complain about illegal immigrants. Well guess who's coming to dinner?
