American Scholar and Blogger Ted Henken is Interrogated by Cuban State Police

The American Scholar and blogger Ted Henken, who was visiting cuba researching the Cuban bloggersphere, was interrogated before his departure, by Cuban State Police at "Jose Marti" Airport in Havana and was warned that he would not be allowed to re-enter the Island.

The heading of his blog called "El Yuma", Henken writes..... Rejecting the derogatory term "Gringos" and the accusatory epithet "Yanquis," Cubans prefer to refer to us, their North American neighbors, as "Yumas." This blog is simply one Yuma's way of sharing his thoughts on all things Cuban, a subject that often generates more heat than light.
