Back in January, the government arrested (and imprisoned) Florida
International University Professor Carlos Alvarez and his counselor wife,
Elsa Alvarez, on charges of spying for Cuba (or, technically, being
"unregistered foreign agents").
Now there's a new development -- it has been revealed that the government
had planted a bug in their bedroom (!), and wiretapped their phones, for
years (!). Were they plotting terrorist attacks? Stealing military secrets?
Not even close. "The couple...are suspected of reporting on the exile
community and its leaders to Cuban leader Fidel Castro's government." Not
reporting on classified government activity. Not reporting on U.S. military
secrets. Reporting on the actions of private citizens (or, more accurately,
allegedly reporting on).

Walter...fumigate your bedroom!
Levity aside, this is a very serious implicit attack on anyone who dares to
show support for the Cuban revolution. For their "crime" these two people
remain in jail.
