Heads of State Make History

Newsfeeds are abuzz with the news that Fidel Castro has resigned from his reign as el comandante of the communist island, Cuba, just shy of the 50 year mark as president. Castro, 81, names his brother, Raul Castro, 76, as acting President in 2006 as he battled an unspecified illness.

I can’t imagine what one of the most hated, feared, and romanticized political figures of the past 5 decades does after retirement, but Castra says that he will continue to address the Cuban people through his writings under the title “Reflections of Comrade Fidel.”
