Life in Cuba

The article and photo essay "Hard Times in Cuba," March 13, seems accurate enough, and for that I offer praise, but something is missing from the story.

How about the Cubans who want open economic and cultural relations with Americans but despise the United States economic blockade because it, more than the fall of the Soviet Union, hinders their ability to improve their country?

How about the Cubans, young and old, who join volunteer brigades to work in agriculture and construction? Where are the pictures of people who keep on smiling in these hard times? Jamie York, Boulder, Colo.
