any Cuba fans out there?

Posted by on November 16 at 16:19 PM

Last Tuesday, the UN General Assembly voted 182 to 4 (with one abstention) to lift its four-decade old economic embargo against Cuba.

This was the 14th consecutive year that the Assembly has voted on a resolution calling to lift the U.S. trade, financial and travel embargo—particularly its provisions on penalizing foreign firms.

Today, word on the street is Castro has Parkinson’s.
