Spies like nosotros

A husband and wife who work at Florida International University have been indicted of being spies for Cuba. She is a social worker and he is an assistant professor there, and apparently, they have more free time than the rest of us. Admittedly, it's about as easy to get accused of being a "pro-Castro spy" as to get a tan in Miami. But, I'm going to give the Department of Justice the benefit of the doubt on this one. Something about it sounds bad for the couple. But, there's something sadly quixotic about spying for Castro at this point. Sort of like gathering military information and sneaking it to Grandpa in the nursing home. Isn't that what Cuba is at this point? One big nursing home ruled by the mandates of senile dementia?
