U.S. State Department softens travel advisory on Cuba

U.S. State Department softens travel advisory on CubaThe United States on Thursday revised its travel advisory on Cuba to “exercise increased caution,” from “reconsider travel,” a move that some in the tourism sector hope could help reverse a decline in American visitors to the Caribbean island. The U.S. State Department had warned its citizens last year not to visit the country because of a spate of still unexplained illnesses among its embassy personnel in Havana. The new U.S. travel advisory acknowledges, however, that these so-called “attacks” seemed to target those personnel and not private citizens, and therefore simply advises travelers to “exercise increased caution in Cuba.” Cuba and many analysts have branded the warning on travel to the Communist-run island as politically motivated.

Mike Huckabee's air travel jokes crash and burn on Twitter

Mike Huckabee's air travel jokes crash and burn on TwitterThe conservative commentator and former Republican presidential candidate had just landed at Nashville International Airport on a red eye flight out of Los Angeles when it was temporarily quarantined because of a possible sick passenger on board. After sitting on the ground for 40 minutes, Huckabee told his 1.08 million Twitter followers that his American Airlines plane had been quarantined. “It’s the Russians! I just know it!” About a half-hour later, he tweeted a picture of emergency vehicles on the tarmac and announced that medical personnel were the gate, adding “Hope it’s not because I got that straw in CA!” But Huckabee’s humor did not go over well with most of the more than 1,600 people who tweeted back at him on Thursday morning.
