Supreme Court on Trump's travel ban: Why its tone sounds a bit differentThe Supreme Court’s Monday ruling on President Trump’s proposed travel ban was certainly important on substance. Via a nine-to-zero vote, high court justices allowed Mr. Trump to prohibit entry into the US of some (but not all) people from majority-Muslim countries he declares to be dangerous.

A cold shoulder to CubaFor more than half a century US presidents have wrestled with Cuba. Fidel Castro’s communist revolution in 1959 turned what had been a friendly nearby island escape for American tourists into a defiantly independent – and potentially dangerous – foe. An early failed US attempt to overthrow Mr. Castro was followed by an economic blockade and, eventually, by the Cuban missile crisis – a stare-down with Cuba’s patron, the Soviet Union, that threatened to end in nuclear war.
