Bye Bye Castro

The word is that Castro is sick. Sick enough to hand power to his brother, which is actually quite astonishing for a dictator - he must really be in trouble. In fact the last dictator to freely hand over power to another dictator was.... hmmm.... I am still thinking.... Yes.. that answer could be Diocletion in 305 AD.

Lets hope Castro is on his death bed. The unfortunate thing about Castro's demise here is that his death is going slowly, which gives other croanies like his 75 year old brother the time to consolidate power. I wonder however, if anyone but Castro will be able to retain an iron grip. Let's hope that the U.S. has a plan for what to do following Castro's demise. Let us hope that the plan includes occupation by American armed and trained cuban exiles.

It would be so nice to vacation in Cuba.

Raul Castro, Fidel's youngest brother at 75, has been the Number 2 guy in Cuba for a while now. He was the more fervent of the brothers, immersing himself into socialistic causes very early in life. I don't hold high hopes for Raul. The good news is that his health isn't the best either.
