    Letters to the Editor — Cuba coverage dispels myths

    The article regarding a Cuban official visiting Merritt College is notably the lead story of the March 17 Laney Tower, and the choice was well-made. (“Cuban official visits Merritt/First U.S. Cuban embassy secretary talks new relations with U.S.”)
    The story rectifies misled ideas, including the liberties that the United States has taken with this island nation. 
    However, the Cuban secretary’s visit is merely an implied positive experience.
    For that reason a more explicit statement of the assembly’s aftermath would bring more significance to the article.

    Letters to the Editor
    The Tower accepts letters to the editor. Letters should be 150 words or fewer. Email letters to laneytower(at)peralta.edu, with the subject line “Letters.” We sometimes edit for space and clarity.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
