In the twilight zone
The ever-loyal Cuban media, which have been tightly controlled by the Castro regime for the best part of 50 years, have just published the latest "editorial" penned by the ailing 80-year-old dictator.
Surprisingly, this latest dispatch is not yet another barely coherent attack on George W Bush and those evil Americans across the Florida Straits. Or on ethanol.
Instead, it's a "reflection" by Castro on his own recent writings.
According to the Comandante en Jefe, he is torn between writing brief pieces and longer, more detailed opinions.
"This dilemma is, for me, a headache," he writes. "I am also concerned about the space they take up on the front pages of our newspapers, dearly needed to report on our nation's day-to-day events."
Luckily for everyone, Castro has the solution - as usual.
From now on, he will write some shorter items on some days and longer items on other days, depending on ... well, depending on how he feels.
As for where his writings will be published, Castro tells editors that they are free from now on to publish his longer editorials inside their papers if they so wish, rather than on the front page.
You think I am making this up, right? If only. Read the whole bizarre thing here and wonder at how anyone could take such absolute drivel seriously.
