Extreme caution and thoughfulness is needed.

First I am relieved to hear from Lou.  My knowledge of New York geography 
is very poor and I thought he might have been in danger.  Secondly I think 
our attitude should be total agreement with the Cuban statement.  At times 
I am exceptionally proud of Cuba and this is one such time.

Have we though crossed a Rubicon here? It is impossible to say at this time 
but my first reactions are absolute horror at the images which are 
constantly being relayed on television here and secondly a gut feeling that 
the State and the Right and Sharon and co will benefit greatly from this.

We so desperately need a world based on compassion and caring for all 
living things and a respect for nature.  I have never felt that dream to be 
so far away as it is now.
