After last year’s song-and-dance over Fidel Castro’s 80th birthday, there isn’t much talk about his eighty-worst now. Granma’s English website just has a silly cartoon and some kiss-up letters from the five convicted spies serving their sentences in the U.S.
Funny, I wonder if they’d publish letters from the political prisoners languishing in Cuba’s prisons.
For that matter, I wonder if El Comandante’s even around today, or if he’s in a much warmer place, where candles would be irrelevant. Either way, unhappy birthday, Fidel. You earned it.
