Gen Y blogger given access to punk rocker's trial

Cuba's most famous resident blogger, Yoani Sanchez, was allowed to attend Gorki Aguilar's trial on Aug. 29. To me, that's quite remarkable - a sign that Cuban authorities 1) recognize the power of Sanchez's blog, called Generacion Y; and 2) showed greater transparency than usual in a sensitive political case.
So is this an isolated incident? Or a sign of things to come?
