He's not very happy with me right now because I've been witholding the goods lately. I gave him an ultimatum, either learn english or I'm out! I'm not trying to be cruel. I only want what's best for him. He says he wants to come to the States to live. Well, that requires a bit more than just looking good. When I returned to my small vacation villa I found him by the pool with the language kit I purchased for him. I guess the power of the booty wins.

Ricardo Alarcon has residents, exiles and policymakers abuzz with speculation the much-hated exit visa could end, even if Raul Castor's government still carefully limits the travel of doctors, scientists, military personnel and others in sensitive roles.
In the past 18 months, Castro has removed prohibitions on some private enterprise, legalized real estate and car sales, and allowed compatriots to hire employees. Scrapping travel controls could be an even bigger step.
Even half measures such as staggeringly high visa fees or ending limits on how long Cubans can live abroad would be significant.
"If Cuba ends the restrictions on its own citizens' travel, that means the only travel restrictions would be those the United States imposes on its citizens", said Philip Peters, a Cuba expert at the Lexington Institute in Virginia.
Rumors of the exit visa's demise have circulated for years. The whispers became open chatter last spring after the Communist Party endorsed migration reform at a crucial gathering. Alarcon's comments published last month revived hopes.
