Castro resigned. Unless Controlling Authority is your home page (hey, what a great idea), you already know this.
Here is what frightens me:
President Bush, traveling in Rwanda on a tour of African nations, greeted the news by saying that the resignation should be the beginning a democratic transition in Cuba that should lead to free elections. “The United States will help the people of Cuba realize the blessings of liberty,” he said.
I am not sure how many countries are interested in the U.S. helping them secure these blessings anymore. But if this gets us closer to imported Cuban rum being legal, I say it is good news. Think how much better the Mojitos could be.
