No news in Havana

Surely it must be time for Havana to produce some new photographs of Fidel Castro …

It’s been a month since Cubans were shown carefully staged photographs of the ailing 80 year old dictator supposedly recovering from surgery.

Back then, the official Cuban media, which is tightly controlled by the communist regime, assured Castro’s “friends around the world” that the Comandante en Jefe was getting better all the time, already giving orders on the phone and keeping an eye on matters of State.

So, why is Castro still in hiding?

Have you been monitoring radio transmissions from the Cuban-American Mafia in Miami? Ha!

Those exact words were said on La Poderosa (670 on your AM dial) yesterday.

They said that surely if Castro were coherent they would have managed to film (or edit together) at least 10 seconds of him making sense and released it.

Remember those photos of him supposedly talking on the phone (supposedly keeping in touch with everything going on, on the island). If he can talk on the phone, one presumes that he can talk to Cubans on TV.

Castro can't talk because of the stroke he had while being operated on for cancer. He's a mute now.

"So, why is Castro still in hiding?" Simple. For the same reason the skeleton wouldn't cross the road: NO GUTS.
