…like a windvane during a hurricane, with news that Fidel Castro is really, finally dead. Spanish- (and English-) language radio and TV, newspaper websites, blogs, even Drudge. Everyone’s talking about it–but acknowledging it as a rumor at this point.
I myself saw little activity in Miami (related to celebrations, or anything similar), but then again, I haven’t had the chance to drive by the heart of Little Havana to check for myself.
My own take is–and I admit this is HIGHLY speculative–that Castro is indeed dead but Cuba’s commie government will make the announcement when they’re good and ready. This has been the SOP for commie governments since at least Stalin’s death.
Either way, stay tuned. This looks like it could be one wild ride…
