Castro

I hear from a good friend this evening that Fidel Castro handed over power to his brother. Sounds like big news, so I go online to get more information. I go do a google news search and see a story pop up from the KC Star and CNN. I tam not happy with those options and decide to check STLtoday, for if I am going to read the story, I want to read my paper's report.

Now this is fresh news and there is nothing on this yet. But of course on the front page it tells me it is hot outside. Okay, that is the front page of our newspaper. And then I click on the news. And there is a giant picture of a child playing the drums.

sigh.

Fidel, I just want some information on Fidel. And so I check the NY Times: Front Page with big pic. Now I get to read the story. I would prefer to read about this from my boys in my own neighborhood. I would think that this might be important for people in the neighborhood to know. Like this war that is going on. In Iraq. In Afghanistan. In Lebanon/Palestine/Israel. North Korea. A WW III, as Newt Gingrich claims.

It *is* hot outside.

Perhaps Castro is close to taking a dirt nap. All red blooded Americans and free Cuban exiles can only hope. Please feel free to visit my blog and post your thoughts on this and other matters.

geez...i wonder what would happen in the event of his death? would it be unrest, status quo? with all the other crap going on in the world right now, its hard to even worry about it...

what is the ultimate goal of the US anyway, a free Cuba, kinda like a Puerto Rico type thing?

Forgive my ignorance...it just feels to me kike Cuba isnt anything to worry about one way or another, although I hear that it does make for a wicked vacation spot if you can fanagle your way in ;)
