Fidel Castro underwent surgery today, adding to the general sense of unease in the world. He is reportedly doing fine after surgery and in good spirits.
Fidel handed power over to his brother Raul during the operation.
What will Cuba be like after Fidel is gone? Only time will tell. Castro is 79 (soon to be 80) and in pretty decent shape for a guy his age. He’s a brutal dictator, but at the same time, he’s got a point about the U.S. wanting to swallow his country whole.
What does Fate have in store for us? I guess we watch and wait.
