A vote for the Cubans

Thank you for the recent series of articles on Cubaespecially "Cuba's Old US Cars," Jan. 31.

For the past two years I have noticed many one-sided articles critical of Cuba in United States newspapers. These articles usually predict that the Cuban revolution will not survive the US blockade and the fall of the Soviet Union. Yet the Cuban revolution continues, more than two years after the fall of the communist regimes in Eastern Europe. Why is that?

I found in the article about old US cars one answer to the reason for Cuba's survival: Her people are very resourceful. Perhaps the US government underestimates the Cuban people and their leaders. Perhaps the US blockade will be good for Cuba by encouraging development of local industries and agricultural resources. Charles M. Calley, St. Johnsbury, Vt.
