What happens next is the same old fruitless discussion.
It might be noted that Val was not always so hypothetical-friendly as he is now.
In a discussion on the embargo two years ago (August 2005), Val demanded of a commenter: "Please inform us how changing the current US policy towards Cuba will, IN FACT and not some idealistic HYPOTHETICAL, foster a change within the island of Cuba."
And next year, will Val love or hate hypotheticals?
Val's opinions are as variable as the weather. Since I don't have a satellite up in space, it is useless to try to predict them. It's hard enough to keep track of them.
