End the travel restrictions for Cubans

Now that Bush is gone, and we have the Peace Messiah occupying the White House, Albor Ruiz' breathless anticipation of the lifting of all travel restrictions to Cuba is palpable.  He envisions a Cuba swarming with American tourists, never mind the recalcitrant anti-casto lobby. Sadly, he doesn't mention the millions of Cubans held captive on the island […]

Oh we'll be able to spawn change in Cuba if only we had more "people to people contacts" some say. Flood the island with tourists, blue jeans and rock and roll music, others say. […]
