Odds and ends

  • Apparently unconcerned about its own climate for inward investment, Cuba supports Argentina’s expropriation of the 51 percent stake that Spain’s Repsol held in YPF, the Argentine oil company.  The Cuban statement supports Argentina’s sovereignty, which is not really at issue.  Reuters story here.

  • Herald: Florida authorities are about to conclude an investigation of Rep. David Rivera’s finances without bringing charges, but a federal investigation continues.

  • In a letter (pdf) to the Secretary of State, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops calls once again for an end to the U.S. embargo against Cuba.
