For John, BLUF: Departure of Communism does not necessarily mean the creation or the return of Democracy. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Today on City Life Registrar of Deeds Richard Howe said that he could characterize views on Cuba based on their political orientation. I think that is not true.
My own view on Cuba is that it is a good move on President Obama's part, although it will take Congress to end the embargo.
All that said, to quote former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, "What difference, at this point, does it make?" The Canadians and Europeans have been going to Cuba for years, to no impact. Even if the Brothers Fidel and Raoul go away and full fledged capitalism returns, will it be any better a democracy than under the man they replaced, Felgencio Batista, or under themselves?
