Back to the future
There is renewed speculation that the health of the semi-retired dictator may have taken a turn for the worse over the past few days.
How do we know this? Well, we don’t for sure, but newspapers in Mexico and in Spain have pointed out that it’s been close to a month since Castro I wrote the last of his lengthy (and very, very dull), “editorials” for the Cuban media.
The papers also point out that the most the old man could manage on January 1 was a brief sentence "congratulating" the Cuban people on the 50th anniversary of the regime.
It’s all speculation, of course. But heck, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
