Bring Cuba in from the Cold

The Brits are saying that Obama will begin to open contacts with the Castro government. I say, it's about time. I stopped caring whether Cuba stayed above the waves or not when the Soviets collapsed. And when the Cuban expatriates in Florida stopped making the difference in carrying the state for conservative Presidential candidates, well, that was icing on the cake. So here's a good office pool question: How long until Cuba becomes another China and starts owning all our debt? Silly Communists! Buying U.S. bonds is for saps! :-) Why? Because they're denominated in dollars and *we* define what a dollar is! We used to pull this crap on the Europeans all the time in the first half of the nineteenth century! (Nelson Muntz voice) HA-ha!
