Picture of the day

According to the caption of this Associated Press photograph, here is "interim" president Raul Castro showing his pal Hugo Chavez a gun supposedly used by Fidel Castro during "the Revolution".

This is a LONG-distance rifle (notice the eyepiece). Fidel always kept well away from the thick of any battle that presented any significant risk to his hide, I mean the "revolution." Such "prudence" was much in evidence during the Moncada attack in 1953 and earlier, during his youthful "escapades" as a gang member in Havana.
