Great thought, Dr. Jake! I am all for it. The
experience in Costa Rica was amazing.

What a great opportunity! Anytime people have a chance to learn about each other, we should take advantage! Music speaks an international language -- it can help not only the city of Madison, but also our two countries. We've had sanctions against Cuba for over 50 years now ... are we any farther ahead?

Yes we can and Yes we should!
Didn't the MSO, that is Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, go to Cuba a few years back? And wasn't that considered a big success? Remember that great Leonard Bernstein concert (with assembled orchestras) after the wall was dismantled in Berlin?
I think this also fits in well with Obama's idea that we should be ready to talk with everyone--even our enemies. Let music lead the way.(But note: Hillary says its all celestial music and waving of wands!).

None other than the Decider-in-Chief has come out today and chided Sen. Obama for trying to reach out to Cuba. Obama in turn has said that the "American people aren't looking for more of a do-nothing Cuba policy" that hasn't worked for 50 years.
I say if W. opposes it, it's got to be good! Besides W. is going to be out of a job pretty soon and Grandpa McCain will be put to rest back in Arizona.
Let's start packing those instruments up for a big road trip to Cuba!
