It's 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7, Election Day in the United States of America. As I cross my fingers and hold out hope that U.S. voters will turn away from the "dead hand of dictatorship" that is the George Bush presidential administration, I run across the news that U.S. sanctions are tightened against our tiny neighbors in Cuba. Who will they stomp on next?
Cuba might be the last thing on our minds right now, but it represents our country's 1984ish policies toward whatever is foreign to us.
I want to visit Havana, and the government would slap me with a $10,000 fine for doing so?
What gives, America?
