Cuba Becomes Slightly More of a Travel Option
According to the AP, Barack Obama will make Cuba slightly less hard to visit, at least if you're a student getting academic credit or a church group "traveling for religious purposes." More airports will be able to offer charters to Cuba (currently that's only possible from Miami, L.A., and New York City). Also, Americans can now send $500 every three months to Cuban citizens who aren't Communists or part of the Castro administration. The changes will go down in the next three weeks. Let freedom -- and tourism for God or academia -- ring!
