Kentucky Paper Says Open Cuba Travel

HAVANA TIMES, Aug. 22 — The newspaper Courier Journal from Louisville, Kentucky, defended the elimination of the travel to Cuba restrictions instead of easing them, as White House representatives have announced as a possibility.  In an editorial the daily also said that the embargo has been a failed effort to oust Fidel Castro’s government.  Greater contact with the U.S. people could encourage the Cuban population’s wish to make economic and political changes, it said, reported IPS.
