Sunday Morning Not So Funnies

Grudge Match? From the semi-finals of the World Cup Baseball tournament- Cuba and the United States have both emerged victorious. The finals will be today in Taipei. Sports lovers, see article here.

Wishful thinking. Russia has restructured Cuba's 166 million debt, stretching it out over ten years. As the article makes clear, this is recent debt, not the estimated 26 billion dollars owed to the Soviet Union. Sure, let's trade.
