Matter of Opinion

Our view: Cuba embargo an anachronism

Today's editorial urges the end of an outdated embargo on trade with Cuba, which hurts some Northwest farmers in particular. An excerpt:

Like the old cars that rattle around that island nation, this foreign policy relic is running on fumes. After 47 years, it's obvious that the embargo against Cuba will not have the desired outcome. Other countries, such as Venezuela and Brazil, have stepped in to deliver essential goods.

Have a cigar and share your thoughts on this issue.
