HAVANA TIMES — Work continues full speed at Havana’s Latinoamericano Stadium where in less than three weeks US President Obama and his delegation will attend a baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban National Team.

Electricians have been replacing the stadium installations and improving on the lighting. Around the Latino, as Cubans call it, pot holes and sidewalks are being quickly repaired.

Even the buildings with facades on the street leading up to the stadium are getting a fresh coat of paint courtesy of the government, reports Progreso Semanal.

    I need your help! I am a high school administrator from the United States (Texas)who will be traveling to Havana on Friday and bringing with me about 100 lbs of donated baseball gloves, catchers mask/chest pads and leg guards, shirts, shoes, etc. The boys at my school raised money this year to purchase new equipment and they would like to donate their former equipment to a team in Havana. I am asking for some suggestions for where I should show up to find a school or a team who could benefit from this used equipment.

    There is nothing and no one who is pro “Batista” I defy you to show me ANYTHING that represents a positive stance on Batista. As usual the Cuba issue with you is a zero sum game. It’s either Batista or Castro. Has it ever occurred to you the issues transcend them. But then you’ve been singing that tired tune since your days on the Miami Herald pages.

    I DON’T blame everything wrong with Cuba on the Castros and their revolution. Just most of it. Myanmar survived 50 years of a US embargo. North Korea is ‘surviving’ a US embargo as is Iran. Now that I think of it, it begs the question “who hasn’t survived US sanctions?” Finally, given my familial ties, I absolutely see Cuba from more than one perspective. If you knew my in-laws, you would understand why this is true.

    What was the impact on the US economy as a result of that recurring UN resolution? Were there sanctions applied? Are Americans treated any differently abroad in the wake of these votes? None, no and no. Of course I respect the 191-2 tally. But like Mother’s Day and Feed the Hungry resolutions, this annual UN ritual is a toothless tiger. As far as Carlos in Portugal is concerned, any idiot can go online and make personal attacks in a blog. I’m still waiting for an intelligent reply that tells me why my comment is wrong.
