Re "Welcome to the Sheraton; Ignore the Red Stickers," March 1 So the Treasury Department orders a Sheraton hotel in Mexico City to evict Cubans because taking their money is a violation of the U.S. embargo against Cuba. Then we're told the Cubans were at the hotel meeting with U.S. oil executives discussing future investments. What's the real story here? JAN HANSEN Los Angeles As a Canadian who has traveled in the U.S., visited Cuba, lived in Mexico and watched the ebb and flow in Cuban-American relations for more than 40 years, I wonder if the more important questions arising from the incident that sparked this situation might be who were the American energy executives meeting with the Cuban delegation, what action has the U.S. government taken against those executives for obviously being in violation of American law, and do any of those executives have a special relationship with anybody working in the White House?
