Sh*t happened 12/30/15: St. Pete courts Cuba, Kriseman courts council, everybody loves medical pot


Hey, some shit actually did happen in the midst of what's traditionally one of the slowest news weeks of the year! (We know you're exhausted; just try to fake some enthusiasm for another two days, OK?)

TBO.com has an interesting story by Paul Guzzo about the progress of St. Pete's attempts to build its cultural relationship with Cuba. Intriguing stuff, but you guys know this is somehow all about baseball, right?

Speaking of baseball, Mayor Kriseman floated the idea that city council members meet individually with him and Rays in an attempt to move forward toward a deal that would allow the team to explore other options. Everybody be cool; I seem to remember that the last time a southern mayor and council representative went behind closed doors, shit got a little fist-y...

According to a joint Times/WTSP poll, nearly three out of four Bay area residents are in favor of medical marijuana. The other one in four, unfortunately for reality, still remembers that friend's cousin in high school whose neighbor was rumored to have jumped off a bridge in an attempt to fly after "taking the reefers." 

And finally, the original Guns N' Roses lineup will reportedly reunite for a performance at ultra-hip Cali fest Coachella, then tour together. Looks like the stars finally aligned, and we don't mean that in the figurative way — Axl Rose's live-in psychic probably said that exact thing. (Also, money.)
