"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

How disappointing.

Former Beatle Paul McCartney is considering holding a concert in Cuba next year, and is sending his agents to the island in July to work out the details, the Juventud Rebelde newspaper has reported.

Cuban authorities, including Culture Minister Abel Prieto, have already approved the concert, the paper said, quoting writer Ernesto Juan Castellanos, who attended McCartney's June 1 concert in Liverpool.

"I know for sure that he wants to come. His representatives have asked me about many things," he told the paper.

McCartney travelled to Cuba with his children in January 2000, to find out more about the island's traditional music.

Castellanos took the opportunity to grab a quick word with McCartney at the end of his concert in Liverpool, and asked him when he would go back to Cuba.

McCartney jokingly replied: "Next week."
