Goodbye, Fidel

Well, it had to happen eventually,

HAVANA (AP) - An ailing, 81-year-old Fidel Castro resigned as Cuba's president Tuesday after nearly a half-century in power, saying he will not accept a new term when parliament meets Sunday.

The old guy's gone. I guess it's a bigger deal for the baby boomers than for me, but it's still a mater of significance. Here's to the Cubans, hopefully they can rebuilt their economy and their country. I'm convinced that within 10 years, Havanna will be bigger than Miami, Vegas, and Cancun. However, I do wonder whose boots will be on the ground first--the mob, the bankers, or the CIA.

This story does damage my theory that Fidel Castro was a robot. Well, Dick Clark's still there...
