    Letter stated...."I see the beginnings of what happened in Cuba starting here

    Perhaps if she looked closer, she might see the beginning is long gone... I suddenly have an urge for a Cohiba... and a Michael Moore healthcare system that he appreciates.

    Great article that captures the concerns of people who embrace freedom from government control and individual freedoms.

    Bad article for people who enjoy of comfort of big brother.

    Interesting propaganda piece.

    Too bad this columnist did not research his information, but rather relied on hear-say and annecdotes.

    One positive - in the 1950's, Cuba was known as the "whorehouse"of America" and the capital of Mafia corruption and violence.

    No longer.

    As the older generation of Cuban refugees dies out, the US should consider ending the 50 year-long embargo and begin trading with Cuba. Its citizens would benefit greatly.
