“Revolutionaries of the world must follow his legacy.” For once I agree: they should all drop dead.

One could enter into a long recitation of Fidel Castro’s monstrous crimes;
itemize from the scroll of the coldly murdered; the imprisoned and tortured; the exiled, at the risk of their lives; nod to a whole people enslaved, their whole lives on the Cuban plantation. One might spend the morning contending with the coolies of political fashion in the West, who have embraced so many real monsters; yet go hog wild over a little waterboarding. Or with media that instinctively applaud the crushing of media and free speech in foreign countries, provided only that the perpetrators claim to serve the progressive cause, on what we might call “the left side of history.”

But no, not today. Today we have something to celebrate. Pass the cigars : Essays in Idleness

Your Say

My elderly Cuban friend has visited there once a year for many years. What he sees now is that all that made the Cuban so distinctive has been sucked away by the "revolution", only the very old keep that memory. The new Cuban is a blank slate who speaks Spanish. Mission accomplished. My fried is a tough guy, a very tough guy, but his country died before he will, and this haunts him.

I hope Castro was still lucid enough to appreciate the outcome on the evening of November 8th.

And on Thanksgiving I told the younger kids and relatives who were grousing about the election that years from now, they will not remember this as just another election, but as the Second American Revolution, and that by they will hopefully have the sense to feel lucky that they witnessed it, like I already am.

Where else can you see 59' Cadillac rear fenders on a 1964 Ford F100 and look like they belonged there?
