Out of the Humidor

CA Readers
From the Print Edition:
Jeremy Irons, March/April 2013

Dear Marvin,

Thanks for those beautiful magazines. I wish, though, I had come across your November-December magazine earlier. For now there is a fresher issue, but anyway, allow me to say that I did find your Wrong About Cuba Again editor’s note in that issue awfully off mark.

In the face of 50 years of failed U.S. policy against Cuba—a policy repudiated by the entire international community and certainly supported by increasingly fewer people in the U.S., including Cuban-Americans—the idea should not be for the U.S. to continually try something else that might more effectively undermine the system in Cuba. The main goal of any serious policy by any serious, peace-seeking (and not imperially guided) government ought to be respectful coexistence with its peace-loving neighbors.

At some point, the U.S.’s stubborn and imposing idea of what Cuba needs to do must cease. Cuba should be left alone to choose its own political and social path, just like any other nation.
