Cuban Woman Reaches Miami via DHL delivery [really]

Miami (dpa) - A 20-year-old Cuban woman arrived Wednesday in Miami in a box transported by delivery service DHL and immediately asked for political asylum.

The woman was being interrogated by customs and immigrations officials, a spokesperson said.

Employees at DHL were surprised when the young woman emerged from the box, sent from Cuba via Nassau in the Bahamas.

``Suddenly the box opened and the young woman ran out,'' an employee said. The box was perforated with holes to allow her to breathe.

Under U.S. laws Cuban refugees who make it to land are allowed to stay in the United States and those intercepted at sea are returned to the communist island.

I think the freight carriers don't x-ray their stuff. Hopefully not.

She's a winner! I suppose 'ol Fidel will be closing this route real quick. Gee, we're such a lousy, war-mongering, racist country. I can't believe people are express shipping themselves to our shores!

Between this and the guys who rigged up the floating truck, if they can get here, by all means - let them stay! We need this kind of ingenuity here.

But ... but ... Cuba has free healthcare! I just don't understand why she would want to leave. </sarcasm>

Does anyone remember the Lou Reed (Velvet Underground) song "The Package," in which Waldo mails himself to his girlfriend?
