Dear Editor:

    If Alan Gross’ conviction in Cuba for his U.S. funded deceitful
activities is “absurd and inhumane”, so too are the U.S. convictions
of five Cubans for, as you state, “spying on anti-Castro exiles”.
It’s an even exchange, and to ask for one without the other [“Release
Alan Gross” Editorial 3/21] demeans Cuba’s very legitimate concern
over the illegal activities of those who have done so much harm to
Cuba, not the least of which is blowing up a civilian airliner killing over 60 people, including the entire Cuban Olympic fencing team – and where the U.S. has allowed the admitted perpetrator walk free.
