Cuba’s Future Is Ever So Bright

Today, Time Magazine selected U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) as one of its “100 Most Influential People in the World.”

Senator Rubio, 40- years old, is only the second Cuban or Cuban-American to be selected to this prestigious list.

The first was 36-year old Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez, who was selected in 2008.

Meanwhile, Cuba continues to be ruled by brutal octogenarians obsessed with absolute power.
