— NPR's Tom Gjelten reports that the Pope has finished his trip to Cuba. He ended the visit on a Castro-friendly note, asking Cubans at home and in exile to work towards reconciliation and warning them not to turn blindly to free markets. But earlier in the weekend he'd been more confrontational, calling on Castro to free political prisoners.
