Property Buying In Cuba, LA Dogs And A Nixie

For the first time since Fidel Castro took hold of power in 1959, private property can now be legally bought and sold in Cuba.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is expected to sign a bill currently before him that will change the laws governing dog barking. Under the new law, a dog’s barking that continues for 10 minutes straight or  intermittently for 30 minutes or more within a three-hour period would be considered excessive. If  the Department of Animal Services determines in a hearing that the barking was excessive, a first offense would cost the owner $250, a second offense $500 and a third offense $1,000.

A nixie is a letter with an illegible or incorrect address. The U.S. Postal Service has two Remote Encoding Centers where “peek-and-poke” clerks handle the indecipherable mail.
