How can a US citizen travel to Cuba?

How easy and how smart would it be for a U.S. citizen to try to go to Cuba?
I'd like to take a trip this summer. I will probably go to Mexico again, and I'd really like to know if making a side trip to Cuba would make sense.
I remember hearing a year or two ago that the State Department was considering lessening its travel restrictions for US citizens to Cuba. Has this happened, and if so, to what extent?
A few years ago (pre 9-11) I was told by a Cuban that an American could go to Mexico and get some form of paper visa which would allow him/her to fly to Cuba without having a Cuban stamp on his/her passport. Any one have information about this or other ways to beat the system?
Also, is it crazy to even entertain the thought of travelling to Cuba? (Would I be arrested or interrogated when I set foot back in Texas?) I assume that it's now harder than ever to cover one's tracks. Thanks!
