Odd and ends (updated)

  • Cuba’s population is declining, and getting older.

  • In today’s Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald, terrific stories, based in part on unauthorized reporting from Cuba, on what it takes to make ends meet.

  • Former Senator Fred Thompson, beefing up his credentials for a presidential run, jumped right on the Michael Moore publicity wagon. Moore fired back, inconveniently quoting a conservative magazine’s profile of Thompson, whose office clutter includes “box upon box of cigars – Montecristos from Havana.” Now if Treasury would only go after Thompson… [Penultimos Dias has the video of Thompson's response, with cigar.]

Phil, don't forget the last piece of this "dialogue" between the Senator and the Documentary Filmmaker: the video is in YouTube, Uncommon Sense --and in Penultimos Días. Regards
