    Why would you encourage tourism to Cuba? My brother Alan Gross is imprisoned there

    Re: “Havana great time — You can get there from here,” June 1 Travel story.

    Writer Joy Tipping wrote a light and airy article about her travels to
    Cuba. My brother Alan Gross also traveled to Cuba four times on behalf
    of our government to bring in cellphones and computers to Cuba’s small
    Jewish community. On his fifth trip in December 2009, he was arrested
    and is now languishing in a Cuban jail cell (bringalanhome.org).

    He would agree that the Cuban people are warm and wonderful. He would
    agree that the music is great and the art bright and cheerful. But
    beware, if you drive in Cuba and have an accident, you would most likely
    be thrown in jail. If you express political thoughts, you will be thrown
    in jail. If you are Cuban and attempt to travel to the U.S., you will
    most definitely be thrown in jail.

    Is this a place you would like to visit and support?
