I have pretty much arrived at the conclusion that a time travel machine may be the only option for those of us who want to see a free Cuba in our lifetime. Therefore, after January 20, 2009, all my efforts will be devoted to the "Cuba Time Travel Project." Yes, I know, many of you are shaking your heads and wondering what has become of a great and noble mind. But, really, it is the only answer, and grasping that fact and acting upon it is precisely what one would expect of such a mind. Ideally, the machine (such is the popular nomenclature, though it may not turn out to be a machine at all) will be able to travel in two directions: into the future, where, undoubtedly, in some future decade, century or millennium, Cuba will be free again; or 50 years into the past when she was in fact free.
If it were possible to take a trip in only one direction, and spend a day either in the past or the future as a spectral witness, sensible to all but unseen by any, in which direction would you choose to go?
