Getting Friendly With Cuba

Standard

Today the President announced that the process will begin to normalize relations with Cuba. I think its about time, actually it should have been done years ago. The island nation would benefit from a two-way exchange of commerce and ideas. Families have been separated because of the embargo that has been in place since the Cold War. Of course there will be a instant run on Cuban cigars which have been “banned” for years. Let’s see how this shakes out, I am happy about this event. It’s time we get friendly with Cuba.

Nyad 1st to swim to Florida from Cuba without cage

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Looking dazed and sunburned, U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad walked ashore Monday, becoming the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage.

What a remarkable athletic test of endurance. In her 60’s she did it in her 5th attempt. Way to go Diana!
