    Solving Cuba’s Katrina Donation Problem

    From Reuters yesterday:

    Cuba finished second in the 16-nation [World Baseball Classic] competition and the runner-up was entitled to 7 percent of the tournament’s profits. But under the 1962 U.S. trade embargo, Havana had to forfeit its cut to get U.S. approval to play.

    Castro, welcoming Cuba’s players home as champions despite their 10-6 loss to Japan in Monday’s final in San Diego, said on Tuesday the Cuban prize money would be donated to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

    The Bush administration, however, is not prepared to allow such altruism by the Cuban leader.

    Psssst … Mr. Castro. Earmark the contribution for Neil Bush’s educational software company and see what happens.

    It’s what the compassionate people with beautiful minds are doing:

    HOUSTON — Former first lady Barbara Bush contributed money to a hurricane-relief fund on the condition that it be spent to buy educational software from her son Neil’s company.

    Even better, make sure you invest in the company first so you not only benefit the Bush family, but you get it on the profits as well! According to Talking Points Memo, that’s exactly what the former first lady’s doing.
