  • asombra: The male fish is a zángano or drone, which is a kind of parasite, but it still serves an essential purpose, even though it...

  • asombra: Oh, Venezuela can never be like Cuba. Cuba was neither that rich nor that stupid. Most Cubans had no idea who Fidel really was...

  • asombra: If our faux general keeps aping Marjory Stoneman Douglas, we may have a TV on our hands.

The short conversation between Fidel and the pope

The humor of Garrincha:

Translation:

"The conversation between His Holiness and Mr. Castro was quite short... What did they talk about?"

"About changing things."

    Short? It was 30 times as long as what the Ladies in White begged for and didn't get.

    Perhaps, Benedict actually believed that, yes, he could save our Beelzebub by being nice and attentive and polite. After all, the Cuban RCC already saved Fidel's life back in 1953, when he was in custody for having masterminded the massacre at the Moncada barracks. Just a wayward, Jesuit-educated Catholic boy, that's all. He just needs some TLC and he'll come around. Lord, to paraphrase Shakespeare, what fools these mortals be!
