50 Years Later, Close But No Cigar

Yesterday marked the fiftieth anniversary of the embargo on Cuba by the United States.

In the White House, the first sign of the looming total embargo came when President John F. Kennedy told his press secretary to buy him as many H. Upmann Cuban cigars as he could find. The aide came back with 1,200.

Any day now, those Castro brothers will cave. I just know it.
