Odds and ends

  • The United States and Cuba meet on the soccer field on Saturday in Havana in the semifinal round that qualifies teams for next year’s FIFA World Cup. They meet again next month when the Cuban team comes to RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.: October 11, with kickoff at 7:00 p.m. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. at

  • More on the theft of high-speed boats: from the St. Petersburg Times, a report on a “criminal ring thought to be working its way up Florida's west coast,” and an investigator that found 44 stolen boats in Cancun.

  • I missed this one from last week: a federal judge overturned a new Florida law that barred personnel from state colleges and universities from traveling to Cuba. The decision retains the law’s prohibition on using taxpayer funds for that purpose, but threw out the prohibition on using private funds.
