Make of this what you will, but I found it interesting. Fark blogger Drew Curtis comes to his own conclusion as to why Fidel Castro’s “resignation” was announced at 3AM and not at a more convenient time:
The only valid reason to make an announcement like that at 3am was that the government was in a hurry. Something happened in the middle of the night to make them move up the timetable.
Iâ€™m going to go out on a limb and speculate that Castro is dead.
The Cuban government is getting their house in order before announcing it. Theyâ€™ll â€œelectâ€ his brother Raoul as Supreme King Hand of God of Cuba or whatever they call it. Then next week theyâ€™ll announce that Castro suddenly died, peacefully and in a way in no way related to his colon.
An interesting theory, for sure. Nothing out of the Castro brothers’ twisted world surprises me so this sounds plausible to me. But we’ll have to wait to see if Curtis is right…
