    the U.S. to Cuba per se, but against the collapse of domestic food production and healthy diets, which happened in the DR. No island in the Caribbean is food self-sufficient, but Cuba is a lot better than any other comparable place on that issue. The U.S. exports to Mexico have driven a lot of people off the farm and into urban slums, and many to the U.S., where they, like the Haitians in the DR, work harassed and in limbo, without political or civil rights.

    My avatar is a photograph I took in 2008 of the headwaters of a waterfall in the imperiled Parque Nacional de Garajonay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on La Gomera, birthplace of my paternal grandfather, in the Canary Islands near the Sahara Desert.
