Adios, Fidel

Fidel has left the building.

Say what you will about the man who tugged Uncle Sam’s beard through 11 U.S. presidencies — I’ll always remember him for his snarky offer to send observers to help oversee the recount of Bush v. Gore in Florida.

Revolutions are iffy things; they don’t always turn out as planned, as we have seen elsewhere. It’s not the initial cost, it’s the upkeep.

P’raps they should come with a warning label: “Be careful what you wish for. You might get it.”

    +1 on that. We were thinking about a trip to Cuba in the late winter. I would like to see Havana before it is cleaned up. But then it may not happen if our new regime closes all the doors.

    Gee, I guess his Orangeness won’t be able to make a deal with Fidel now.

    It will be interesting to see what changes occur in Cuba and how quickly they happen.

      I expect that, to the average Cuban, Insane Clown Pussy looks like some sort of Bizarro World Monopoly character sprung to hideous life.

      Then again, he looks pretty much like that to me, too. ¡Venceremos!

    Trumps not even in office yet and he’s begun the assassinations…
