May ’16 Castro Death Watch Poll

Keep in mind, this poll was written just as the cruise in question was underway…

 

What do you think is going to be the biggest "surprise" to come out of the first cruise to Cuba from the US in years?

  • The Castro bros will practice price gouging to squeeze as many dollars as they can out of the cruise passengers. (67%, 2 Votes)
  • After promising Cuban Americans could travel on the cruise, the Cuban government backtracks and makes them pay some exorbitant "disembarking" fee or something similar (33%, 1 Votes)
  • The cruise passengers are going to "volunteer" to cut sugar cane for an "authentic" experience. (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 3

March ’16 Castro Death Watch Poll

Blowing the dust off this thing…

Yeah, I know as I post this it’s late February, not March.  But this poll question has a certain shelf life so I thought I’d get a little head start (especially since I have posted or done polls in years…).

Will Fidel Castro die before Obama can visit him?

  • Fidel's already dead, Obama's just going to take "Weekend at Bernie's" selfies with the corpse (60%, 3 Votes)
  • No (40%, 2 Votes)
  • Yes (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 5

Castro hit with a stroke?

Well, that’s what the Miami Herald reported yesterday:

“He suffered an embolic stroke and recognizes absolutely no one,” said José Marquina, a respected doctor who in the past has claimed to have direct information about the illness affecting President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.

Every day, closer and closer…

A Forced Re-design and an Apology

As you can see the blog’s design has changed.  I apologize for any inconvenience.  Heck, it was inconvenient for me; I started out simply updating the software that runs this blog and it caused my design to explode.  So I had to create a new design immediately.

 

I also apologize for not posting anything new in nearly a year.  I just don’t have time anymore.  I’ll try to post new items from time to time–if time permits.
