Front page news.....NOT!! How presumptuous. The Cuban government and people will be deciding this issue, not some "Ugly Americans" in Miami.
The Herald's front page news is many times laughable. How parochial for a big city newspaper.

Why are we spending American tax dollars on a project for a country we don't even have diplomatic relations with? This is the kind of stupidity that Fidel and his government love to feed from. I could just hear Fidel saying "Those stupid Yanquis!".

Sergio Pino as an "urbanization expert?" Sergio Pino, Jorge Perez and the rest of the Latin Builders Association can't wait for Cuba to be free so they can go down there, demolish the buildings on the Malecon and put up a wall of high rise condos.

Fix up Little Havanna first. Then worry about another country's business.

WTF - IT'S A SCHOOL PROJECT PEOPLE!!! NOTHING MORE.
So sad to see all the rats and cockroaches come out all at once at the slightest provocation. There goes the illusion that the kitchen in clean! American society's ever present under-current of racism, ignorance and envy at its best.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR TO ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE OF AMERICA.
