“Something has to change, the same thing can’t happen to my generation as happened to that of my parents.”

“The U.S. embargo of Cuba should end as soon as possible and the blockade that the Cuban government puts on its own people should also cease.”

– Yoani Sanchez, two tweets from earlier this week

This is so sad. What kind of people are the expatriates that they don't get? I'm from a different world.

Parse Ms. Sanchez's words carefully - she did not say sanctions should end immediately, just "as soon as possible." Fortunately, by November 3 and beyond - if there is a change in leadership - clarity and common sense will return to how the Congress deals with U.S.-Cuba policy.
