Elian's Grandmothers

Noah talks with NPR's Eric Westervelt in Miami about the decision of the grandmothers of six-year-old Elian Gonzalez to travel to Miami today rather than return to Cuba. U.S officials have been working to arrange a meeting between the women, Elian, and the Miami relatives with whom he's been staying since being rescued from an inner tube last Thanksgiving. Elian's Miami relatives said the grandmothers were welcome to visit, although it's unclear whether a meeting will end the bitter custody dispute over the boy.
