	The AP's daily "Today in History" reports that on Oct. 19, 1960,
President Eisenhower decreed an economic blockade against Cuba. 

	The AP does not report, but it is a fact, that the blockade was in
response to the Cuban Revolution's nationalization of all significant
capitalist enterprises on the island, decreed by the revolutionary
government and carried out on the ground by the National Revolutionary
Militias a few days earlier.
