Louisana Governor Kathleen Blanco has firmed up her plans to visit Cuba and to prop up the castro regime. The New Orleans Times Picayune reports she will visit from March 8-11 in an effort to bring business to the state.
A spokeswoman for the governor said no meetings were planned with President Fidel Castro during her visit, which was announced previously with no firm date. The relaxation of a trade embargo three years ago allows the sale of U.S. food, agricultural, medical and some wood products to Cuba.
A.M. Mora y Leon frequently writes that the Bush Administration is tightening the embargo. It doesn't look that way to me.
