Odds and ends

  • Cuba should be brought back into the OAS, Secretary General Insulza tells the Herald. But does Cuba want in? Seems not – “The OAS has to disappear,” Raul Castro says.

  • Variety: Senator Menendez’ defense of Cuba sanctions draws opposition from Hollywood donors to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which Menendez heads.

  • Columnist Michael Kinsley takes a scientific look at the embargo, and says we should drop it.

  • Computerworld: U.S. telecom companies uncertain about what the Administration’s measures mean for business opportunities.

  • The New Yorker’s Jon Lee Anderson says President Obama has “effectively kicked the ball for ‘change’ back to los hermanos Castro; until now, the onus was on him.”
