Fidel Castro Meets With The Cuban Five

Yes, friends Fidel Castro is still alive. He was photographed meeting with the so-called Cuban Five over the weekend. Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, René González, and Fernando González spent several years in an American jail for spying for Cuba, a charge the Cuban government has always denied. The five were released as a good will gesture in December as President Obama and Raul Castro’s thawing of relations began. When I was in Cuba a few years ago, these five guys were all over the place. There were posters and placards in every hotel and major tourist area to gain sympathy with foreign tourists, especially Americans. It came as no surprise to me when they were who we traded Alan Gross for.

What is surprising is that Fidel is still alive. There have been rumors about his death for years now but he keeps hanging on. My abuela used to say that “No hay mal que dure cien años” or “There is nothing bad that last a hundred years”. In other words, eventually bad things come to an end. But not Fidel. That guy is immortal. I have a theory that they are going to make him a cyborg like Robocop and he’s just going to keep on keepin’ on.
