Unless you live under a rock, you may have noticed one of the few stories capable of displacing the war in Lebanon as the lead story...Fidel Castro has ceded power to his brother Raul Castro (nepotism apparently being a paramount Marxist principle). Fidel stepped down because of surgery for internal bleeding and officially the move is "provisional." However, the rumors are flying around that Fidel Castro is either already dead or very near death. And that this story about the surgery is just Soviet style obfuscation to allow time for the power transfer. Reports are that dancing has already begun in the streets of Miami.
