Couldn’t they Find Something Near Hyannisport?

We have a treaty with Cuba that divides the Straights of Florida in half for the purpose of mineral rights. Cuba has never drilled for oil out there because they are simply too poor (except for billionaire Fidel), I mean the most modern car on the island is a ’57 Chevy. For many reasons the US has chosen to not drill out there. The New York Times has reported that it is all about to change; Cuba has awarded or will award oil leases on 59 fields south of the Florida Keys and westward. Captain Ed at Captains Quarters has some thoughts on this development.
