We can visit China, and soon we will be able to travel to Cuba too

When we were covering the early days of the ethanol craze I wrote a Juice blog post that included possibly obtaining ethanol from Cuban sugar cane. I questioned why it is OK for me to travel to China and Russia and spend US dollars yet am not permitted to travel from Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville cafe in Key West, Florida to the island nation of Cuba located only 90 miles away.

Today’s Florida Sun Sentinel reports that an effort is underway in Congress to drop the travel restrictions that have been in place since the Bay of Pigs disaster.
Quoting from the Sentinel it states:

The Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives on Feb. 4 would allow American citizens unrestricted travel to Cuba for the first time since 1963. The bill by Rep. William Delahunt, D-Mass., and eight co-sponsors would also lift limits on travel by Cuban exiles living in the United States.
