Loaves of Cuban bread make great sandwiches. But I recently learned Cuban bread is also an important tool at town hall meetings. The topic was: Building a parking garage on the remaining waterfront vs. improving public transportation.
As attendees entered, each grabbed a loaf of bread from a nearby table. Why? I wondered. But it soon became clear. When a commissioner or businessman said something they disapproved of, attendees picked up their loaves and waved them vehemently.

Luckily for the waterfront, the Cuban loaves won. 

Could the drive for power lead to murder?
