    it would not hurt to lift the embargo.

    It can only help.

    •  US evicts Cuban delegation from Mex, City Sheraton (none)
      The embargo proves what exactly? That the US hubris knows no bounds, it looks like.

      Heard on Latino USA* tonight that the US gummit forced the Mexico City Sheraton to evict a 16 person Cuban delegation there to meet with Texas oilmen to discuss off shore drilling in Cuba. The American delegation's leader was William Rogers, a Republican and former Undersecretary of State. Both Cubans and oilmen moved down the street to a Mexican owned hotel, and the US Treasury was richer by the $6,000 deposit that the Sheraton handed over.

      The columnist suggested this was part of an on-going US effort to embarrass Fox and to interfere in Mexico's upcoming elections, because only the PRI is thought to be strong enough to keep international drug cartels and northward migrants under control - to keep Mexico from becoming "a failed state".

      *Found it in the Mexico City edition of the Miami Herald.
