Is there some State Department rule that you can’t name the Cuban city?

@Owkrender: what are you talking about? Havana is in the dateline and Santiago de Cuba is in the first paragraph.

I love the way these reporters describe Cuba:

“Images on Cuban television showed downed trees, damaged buildings and debris-clogged streets in the communist-ruled island’s second largest city…”

Someone should return the favor, something like this:

“Images in American television showed downed trees, damaged building and debris-clogged streets in New Orleans, one of the largest cities in the plutocrat-ruled nation…”

What’s good for the goose…
