Between the summertime weather, the continued proliferation of the mojito and Fidel Castro’s headline-making faux-endorsement of Barack Obama, Cuba has been on the mind lately. A new Milwaukee ensemble of Ana Ruth Bermudez, Rene Izquierdo and Mrs. Fun, which makes its debut tonight with a 7:30 p.m. performance at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, promises to meet the local demand for all things Cuban with a repertoire of traditional and popular Cuban music. Cellist Bermudez and guitarist Izquierdo both hail from Cuba—in fact, Bermudez became an official U.S. citizen just this spring—and the ladies of Mrs. Fun, Connie Grauer and Kim Zick, are ardent advocates of all things Caribbean.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
