The Cuban government has demanded the U.S. Interests Section in Havana take down its Christmas decorations. Among the trimmings is a sign that reads 75, symbolizing 75 dissident writers and journalists put in jail over the last year. NPR's Renee Montagne talks to James Cason, the chief of America's one diplomatic link to Cuba.
