There was no good way to end Miami Heat’s ties with Dwyane Wade

The Miami Heat got the breakup with Dwyane Wade wrong because there was no good way to get it right. Maybe letting him go was a good business decision, and maybe it wasn’t. Maybe it was a good basketball decision, and maybe it wasn’t. But it was, no maybe about it, a terrible emotional decision. And that’s where interests collide and people get hurt in this kind of collision, at the intersection of sports as a business and sports as a relationship.

Obama in Cuba brings the pain of loss to a Miami exile family

Another loss. That's what this already feels like to so much of Miami, before the “historic” baseball game has even been played. As if the Cubans who fled to this country haven't already felt enough of those losses over the decades. Lost childhoods. Lost roots. Lost families. Lost land. Lost freedoms. Lost lives in the ocean that divides Cuba and America like the million miles of distance between desperation and hope.
