“Time for change,” is what Puerto Rican singer/entertainer Olga Tanon said in the Plaza de la Revolucion in Havana earlier today. Time for change indeed. For the first time in fifty years there was a multitude of Cubans gathered in the famous Plaza without the presence of a certain bearded dictator. Over a million cubans, dressed in white, enjoying the ecclectic music of several international acts along state-approved home-grown artists – in peace.
Meanwhile, back in exile, two men pound each other in front of Versailles on Calle Ocho. Luckily, police were there to put them back on the Leon Medical Center van and send them back to their Lincoln Diaz-Balart sponsored elderly care facility.
Time for change, here and there and everywhere. But what kind of change?
