Odds and ends

  • EFE interviews a vice minister of communications: wider Internet access for Cubans will have to wait; Cuba lacks resources and bandwidth; poor-quality phone line connections to many homes is another impediment. But a future fiber optic cable link to Venezuela may help.

  • At Los Miquis, a video of a son returning to his Havana home after 13 years living in New York. And a very rough dinner table conversation. With English subtitles; decide for yourself if it's a dramatization.

The embargo and the CAA of 1966 should both be relegated to the dustbin of history. They are relics of the Cold War era. Immigrants from Cuba now are exactly that immigrants not exiles. They are more often then not economic refugees. Repeal the CAA
