Odds and ends

  • In Mexico, EFE reports on a meeting of U.S. and Cuban hurricane experts.

  • At Florida International University, the Sun Sentinel reports on a satellite-photo database of properties in Cuba, with a mechanism for registration of claims for future settlement.

  • Cuba’s food buyers may make commitments to import $100-$150 million in U.S. agricultural products at a meeting that begins next week in Havana, AP reports. A North Dakota delegation is already there, an Alabama group arrives today.

The FIU site, and the fact that exiles are clamoring to reclaim propoerties totally HURTS the cause. Its shows again, why I constantly emphasize to my cuban-american friends (most of which who have NEVER been to cuba or 30 years ago) that:

Cubans en la isla are 10 X more scared of Miami Cubans than the beard.

I am not agree with the aforementioned statement, just stating a fact that anyone can confirm after talking with ordinary Cubans en la isla for 1 day.

thanks for this post! great!
