More novels for my list, which now officially extends beyond my lifetime....


Hey Lance, I tried to go to Havana this year, to sing in an international polyphony conference, and give a free concert in Havana Cathedral on Holy Saturday. I applied for the appropriate license & was turned down by the Treasury Dept. Twice. You don't apply to the State Dept., but the T-Department because it's all about the money. My travel was deemed "inconsistent with U.S. policy."


Here's an interesting Fidel story. He was an hoary pallbearer at Trudeu's funeral. The others included Jimmy Carter, the Aga Kahn, and Leonard Cohen.
Quite an assortment. It says something about all of them.
