Oklahoma is trying to sell more ag products to Cuba.
Because Cuba is a subject of continuing controversy, this is a jumping off point for a few questions. Are any sales good sales? As long as we inject more money into our local economy, does it matter where it comes from? How do you feel about your state or city “dancing with the devil” in order to grow?
We all have our limits. My husband and I sell liquor, in the middle of the Bible Belt. We raise and sell cattle that are slaughtered for food. We are fine with these; you might not be.
What are your limits? Have you given them much thought?
