Castro "steps down"

Depriving Miami of a hell of a celebration, although he has to die eventually...

The U.S. MSM mourns:
HAVANA (AP) -- An ailing, 81-year-old Fidel Castro resigned as Cuba's president Tuesday after nearly a half-century in power, saying he will not accept a new term when parliament meets Sunday.

A half-century! That's even cooler than LBJ!

By sunrise, most people headed to work in Havana seemed to have heard the news, which they appeared to accept without obvious signs of emotion. There were no tears or smiles as Cubans went about their usual business.

I get the feeling all the emotions were beaten out of them decades ago.

Can't wait to see what the People's Cube comes up with.
