Too bad, so sad
Cuba's economy has been hammered by the global credit crisis, U.S. relations have not improved much under President Barack Obama and economic reforms that were supposed to ease life on the island have been slow to come.
Cuban President Raul Castro seemingly has little positive to report in his speech Sunday marking Revolution Day, the communist country's top holiday. In fact, he is likely to call for more sacrifice from Cubans in the face of even tougher economic times ahead.
"More sacrifice from Cubans." How much more can they take?
