Odds and ends

  • AP: Two of the Cuban Five had their sentences reduced by U.S. District Judge Joan Lenard.

  • CARICOM celebrates its relations with Cuba and expresses appreciation for Cuban health programs in the Caribbean.

  • In Tokyo, Cuba’s foreign minister says that U.S. policy hasn’t changed under President Obama, and that Cuba is awaiting a response to a “proposed agenda for an eventual bilateral dialogue” that it presented last July.

  • In Cardenas, Elian Gonzalez turned 16 and attended a “cultural gala for the 10th anniversary of the Battle of Ideas.” (H/t Cuban Colada)

  • A hacker made $43,000 worth of calls, mostly to Cuba, on an Illinois company’s phone line in the space of four days. Sounds like a phone card operation that found a way to cut its cost to zero.
