FIDEL CASTRO RELINQUISHES POWER

Breaking at The Association Press and CNN. The skinny:
Cuban President Fidel Castro is transferring power provisionally to brother Raul while he undergoes an operation, Cuban TV announces.
The official story has Castro all tired out after a lot of travel in the past 10 days. It all sounds very sketchy.

More from CNN's reporter in Havana: Castro expects several weeks of recuperation. Raul Castro will control the party and the military with his "temporary" presidency. After 47 years in power, will Fidel Castro go out with a whimper?

Hasta la revolucion siempre!

I will proudly wear my T-shirt that I bought at Staxx bearing his image (well, I think its him) while I skateboard at the square tonight. Wasn't he in Rage Against the Machine, or was that his brother, Che?

Signed,

Clueless like most everyone else

newtster,

I wonder if the Kennedys will be sending a nice fruit basket and a floral piece, upon the death of their good friend...

...or if Hillary will weep upon hearing of his demise.

Q: What does a Hezbollah zealot have in common with El Presidente's gastroenterologist?

A: Both are devoted to stopping the raging in Fidel.

Ooh! That's borderline politically-incorrect! And possibly racist! ;)
