Odds and ends

  • In Bogota, President Uribe’s peace negotiator expects that Colombia’s next round of talks with the ELN guerrillas that begin Monday in Havana will end with the signing of an agreement to “end hostilities.”

  • The Internet version of the U.S. Interests Section’s famous electronic signboard is stuck on July 16.

  • Senator Dodd on Cuba: the candidate calls for the United States to “engage with the Cuban people in support of a peaceful transition to democracy.” H/T: Uncommon Sense.

  • From the department of dubious distinctions, Cuba’s journalists’ union gives an award to Max Lesnik, and Max is there to accept.
