Odds and ends

  • “Why Are Florida Cubans Lukewarm On Rubio?” The National Journal’s political blog asks that question about soaring GOP Senate primary candidate Marco Rubio – and has figures showing that they are not yet showing him the money.

  • “In the months following the revolution, Cuba seemed less an island than an endless sea of triumphant celebration.” That’s former Soviet foreign correspondent Leonid Kamynin, in the first of a series of articles being published by Russia’s RIA-Novosti news agency marking the upcoming 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Cuba.

  • The Herald’s Juan Tamayo recaps the Shakespeare book caper; if Raymond Scott is a thief, he’s the most quotable thief to come along in a long time.

  • Two ways to use Cuba as a political football: from the right to bash President Obama (with the author using a pseudonym), and from the left to bash defenders of the U.S. prison at Guantanamo.
