Odds and ends

  • Rui Ferreira reports on the efforts of Pedro Roig, President Bush’s Radio/TV Marti director, to find a way to stay in his job, “the greatest source of Republican employment in south Florida,” during the Obama Administration. Three times, Rui reports, the White House told him to forget it. And let’s thank Rui for continuing his exclusive coverage of the constitutional government of Cuba in exile, this time with a communiqué from the information minister and a photo of President Rodolfo Nodal, on the occasion of Nodal’s birthday. Happy birthday, Mr. President!

  • Bolivian President Evo Morales looks ahead to celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Cuban revolution next month in Havana, and he wants his cabinet to come along.

  • The “Obama effect:” El Pais reports that the U.S. election result has provoked new discussion of racism in Cuba.

  • CubaEncuentro: A conversation with a guy who put on an ETECSA uniform every day, went to the phone company office in Camaguey, and did nothing but record phone conversations of dissidents, journalists, state enterprise managers, and party and government officials.
