Fidel is Dead.

Okay, that's an opinion, but come on--no audio, no video, not even a snapshot of him exiting the hospital? I think the long transition has begun. Leaves and old lefty--opposed to both despotism and the abuses of capitalism--ambivalent. I suspect that Cuba's story is about to take a radical turn. Will what follows be better than what has been? History will record.

I wouldn't bet against your call. It's all too reminiscent of communications surrounding Arafat's demise, and the sudden physical decline of both Arafat and Sharon.
