4. That's cool news. Great. Unexpected. Former Arkansas Congressperson Blanche Lincoln did, also.

I think it was mentioned that Arkansas grows a lot of rice it would love to commercially sell to Cuba, since Cubans eat a lot of rice.

I called Republican Senator Pat Roberts, a Republican, learned he had already made 2 trips there. Also called Democratic Rep. Dennis Moore. repeatedly, who was a staunch Cuba supporter.

Isn't it odd that so many people have quietly supported ending this economic war on Cubans all this time, yet didn't seem to want anyone to know because it has been a hot item politically, supported wildly by the right wing. It's something wingers would use against them, trying to claim anyone who doesn't want Cubans to suffer because of their revolution is a "commie."

I used to ponder over Blanche Lincoln's position frequently, like Jeff Flake's (Arizona) and others. I thought it made her sound much more like a thinking, strong woman.

Thanks for mentioning these other Arkansas prominent Republicanss. ⭐️
