Suggest to Cuba that they start a "Medical Tourism" business. Hotel/Airline packages. TV and mass media advertising. Rates are so high here and very reasonable in Cuba. Currently Panama gets a lot of medical tourism. One of Cuba's main exports is highly trained Doctors. Also they have some cancer cures not available in USA.

So why Cuba?

Why not go check out Venezuela?

My understanding when we visited Cuba a year ago was that Cuba does indeed have some excellent medical doctors but lack the modern equipment. Understandable given the embargo. Maybe defining that piece of the puzzle would be helpful to all concerned.

Venezuela's not the place to be and hasn't been since Chavez took over and run away inflation set in. Politically, it is a dangerous place to be right now. Google Venezuela' crisis explained.....I've been to Cuba, lovely people, lovely place.

Since real news doesn't get reported much I thought I'd post this.

Just out of curiosity what did these white men pay for the land when they moved to South Africa?

I don't know Legend,

However if we are going to judicate things back to begining of time I guess we will all go back to our original places of ansestry and segregation will be complete. Only problem with that is most of us are of mixed races and ansestry.

Some of things Castro does like Free Education and Healthcare Contradicts Republican Core Values.

Hi Thom,
One week in Cuba with government tour guides/sponsors can not give you a true perspective of what living in Cuba is about. I would suggest that you communicate to your loyal listeners..I am one of them,.... of your limited experience regarding what it is to live in Cuba, not as a tourist, with foreign currency and pampered by the government. Do you really think that they were not aware of your position as a radio personality? Please try to make an attempt to familiarize yourself with a wider perspective before communicating with your listeners,.

Yours truly.
Armando Verea.

Very disappointed in your reporting on Cuba. I expect more from you, Tom. Next time you might want to leave the rarified bubble you traveled in and do some real reporting. Those of us who have family in Cuba understand that life for the average citizen is a STRUGGLE. Yes, most of the Cubans I know are educated people…doctors, engineers, dentists, graphic designers, musicians, etc. But, if you dig a little deeper you’ll find that many of these people have either found a way to leave Cuba or they have remained in Cuba but have taken on low skilled jobs where they can, at least attempt to, make something akin to a living wage. If life in Cuba is so great then why do we find ourselves sending money, medical supplies, clothing, diapers, etc. to our family every month? You dropped the ball here, Tom. This is an example of reporting at its worst.
