Cuba Policy Change….Bout time!

Ding Dong the witch is dead….well not dead but terminally ill.

President Obama showed great political courage yesterday re-establishing diplomatic relations with our island neighbor Cuba while at the same time securing the release of Alan Gross. The American had served five years of a fifteen year sentence after being convicted in a Cuban court of spying.

Additionally three Cuban men convicted of spying in the U.S. 229were released from federal prison and returned to their homes and families.

Whatever your views concerning Cuba it is difficult to argue that fifty years of failed policy is enough. Let us hope these moves by both the U.S. and Cuban governments not only will reunite these families, but will begin the healing process between two neighbors of this hemisphere.
