Odds and ends

  • Reuters: An American art collector donates more than 100 works to Cuba’s Bellas Artes museum, including some by Picasso, Miro, and Pissarro. The donor, Gilbert Brownstone, went whole hog, dedicating the donation to Los Cinco and receiving a decoration from the Council of State. Granma story here.

  • Mambi Watch says everyone, including yours truly, jumped the gun last week when outlandish reports were appearing in Latin American media about the cause of the Haiti earthquake.

  • A Tampa business group returns from Cuba, urges Florida medical schools to build links with Cuban counterparts, and wants approval for Tapa-Havana flights.

  • And here’s an account of the visit to Cuba of softball players from Massachusetts, age 55-80.
