Cuban Spies' Long History of Evil

From the New York Times this morning, that's a February 2009 photo of the recently arrested retired couple, Gwendolyn and Kendall Myers, who have been charged with spying for Cuba for almost 30 years starting in 1980. Very unusually for spies of their era, they were not apparently motivated by money (and were not paid). According to the article, they are alleged to have told an undercover FBI agent how much they admired Fidel Castro, and that they once travelled to Cuba (using false documents) for an evening with him.
The article goes on to say that, in the year before becoming spies, they apparently grew marijuana in their basement and promoted solar energy.
