  1. Picked up a stick to try in Saint Petersburg. They didn’t have many left, cost about $20.
  2. BCN new terminal is miles ahead of the old terminal, for what it's worth.

    Cigars are Chick Bait.

    Cigars (and whiskey) are unmistakably and unapologetically masculine, so as a part of a man's lifestyle it sends the right message. It's a good conversation starter too since others will notice the scent from nearby and therefore notice you. This writer isn't too far off really, but obviously:
  4. This is awesome! I had a blast playing my small part in the pass, looking forward to many more with this great group
  5. Not a huge deal, as everyone has noted, but good news nonetheless

  9. Wow. Where do I begin?
  10. My first from a recent 24.24 UER JUL 17 the other day was solid!
  11. Sounds like a 100% marginal income tax rate is in order
  12. The more things change the more they stay the same
  13. Two years after taking office, President Raul Castro widened the niche for private enterprise in Cuba's state-dominated economy. Capitalism came pouring in. Slowly at first, then gaining speed, spare rooms for rent became rental homes, which became boutique hotels. Backyard cafes became elegant restaurants and bustling nightclubs, backed with millions in capital from the prosperous Cuban diaspora in Miami, Latin America and Spain. English tutors started citywide private after-school programs. And the booming private economy reached into the Communist-led bureaucracy — paying off inspectors, buying stolen state goods and recruiting talented employees with salaries dwarfing those in the public sector. Eight years later, on the verge of leaving office, Castro has thrown the brakes on private enterprise in Cuba again, warning of the rapid pace of change and criminal activity. The decision has raised fundamental questions about the nation's economic path. The Cuban government proclaimed in August that it was putting a temporary halt on new licenses for bed-and-breakfasts, restaurants and other businesses until it could issue new regulations to control illegality. Entrepreneurs whispered about new regulations coming in a month, maybe two. But summer stretched into fall, fall into the new year, and six months later, Cuba's private economy remains frozen. The state-run economy responsible for 70 percent to 80 percent of GDP is stagnant. A once-promising worker-owned cooperative sector has shown little recent growth. Cubans are increasingly wondering when the private economy will be allowed to grow again, and, more broadly, how their government intends to deliver on promises of a sustainable, prosperous socialist system. continued at link
