Fidel Castro dead?
Rumors are once again swirling around the internet that Fidel Castro is either dead or on his deathbed. I've said so myself at least 3 dozen times in the last year. I'm sure that he's been dead or at least very ill for a long time. At this point who really knows outside of a handful of people that consist of his entourage. I don't have any inside sources, I don't know anyone in his entourage, but I know how to use Google and this is what the rumor mills has to say so far:
Along the Malecon
Castro Death Watch
Canada Free Press
There's a million more links in Spanish within these stories.
I always wished I'd be in Cuba when this happened. Sipping a mojito and watching the scene in the streets. Who knows maybe the rumors are once again JUST RUMORS and Fidel will wait until the next time I go!
