Odds and ends

  • The National Security Archive publishes on its website a selection of declassified documents, starting with the Kennedy Administration, about U.S. diplomatic contacts with Cuba.

  • The Herald’s Renato Perez Pizarro does some repair work on Granma’s translation of the latest Fidel “Reflection.”

  • The Spanish government supports collaboration between Spanish and Cuban universities with 2 million Euros, EFE reports.

The 'Cuban'-American mafia is well represented in both parties. How come they have far more power and influence than their numbers/electoral weight would justify?
Is it the Barcardi/Fanjul/Sanchez et al money?

I never cease to be surprised that in a so called democracy like the US these guys keep getting away with their shenanigans.
About time someone with deep pockets takes a serious interest in the Cuba issue and gives them a run for their money.

What's up with Sherritt and Cupet? I guess doing business with scumbag dictators isn't all it's cracked up to be.
