    The blogger/journalist Yoani Sanchez, a leading dissident voice in Cuba and one of the most influential people in the world, according to Time Magazine, is on her first worldwide tour. Sanchez finally received her passport in January, after the Cuban government rejected her application 20 times.
    At the age of 37, Sanchez is the voice of a younger generation in Cuba. Her blog, Generación Y, receives millions of hits a day. Takeaway host John Hockenberry spoke with Sanchez about Cuban politics and her mission to scare the Castro regime while bringing the support of American policymakers into what she hopes will soon be the post-Castro era.
