Odds and ends

  • Granma runs an Interior Ministry statement about four Cubans, two of whom work as guards at a “nautical base” east of Havana, who took possession of a boat and headed for the United States. Cuba communicated with the U.S. Coast Guard, which intercepted the vessel and returned it with all aboard.

  • In the Washington Post, Yoani Sanchez on the recent appearances of Fidel Castro.

  • Herald: Ana Margarita Martinez’ lawsuit to have her legal judgment against Cuba paid from funds owed Cuba by air charter companies is not over, and her lawyers are fighting to move it to Florida state courts.

  • Sort of like watching a car crash in slow motion: the saga of Florida Democratic Senate candidate Jeff Greene and his yacht trip to Cuba.
