    Now that is truly strange, and quite honestly, kinda awful. I wouldn't know what Castro was like obviously, so I'll reserve judgement to those who suffered under his rule, but celebrating someone's death has never seemed right to me.

    Never understood this whole thing about blockading trade with Cuba, does our adm. really think that Castro goes without food, medicine or other necessities. As usual the people who probably are effected most, are women and children.

    Recently I was in Mexico, and ran into a couple of brothers who were sailing to Cuba, and they claimed that over 100,000 Americans go to Cuba and they beat the system. They claim that Cuba does not stamp the passports of visitors, so many people do not have to pay the $1500 fine.

    Well thsi has been the position of every admin since Kennedy. The position is supported by Cuban Americans overwhelmingly, they don't want the US to help prop up this rcommunist regieme, this is enslaving their families in Cuba.

    i've got friends that have been there. They connect through Tornonto or Mexico City. I considered going one year. All my friends in Italy vacation there, and my cousin in Italy married a girl from Cuba. They say it's beautiful, but extremely poor.
