Castro is stepping down! I suppose I should have seen this coming … so he’s not dead after all!

My favorite quote from the Reuters article:
“Castro, 81, said in a statement to the country that he would not seek a new presidential term when the National Assembly meets on Feb. 24.”

… I don’t think there have been true elections in Cuba since Castro came to power. Oh well … now we just get to deal with his brother, Raul, who is 76 to Fidel’s 81. Wonder where he might be in 5 years? It’s the last communist stronghold in the Western Hemisphere, but I’ve got to say, it’s just not going to be the same without Fidel.
