Remind me again next month, please. Better yet, let me know when he’s dead.

This is the leading headline in today's ABC (Spain):

Six Months Without the "Reflections" of the Cuban Dictator

Yes, it's true.  It's been half a year since Fifo el Coma-Andante wrote an essay for Granma, the official bathroom tissue of Castrolandia. (Can't use it for wrapping fish on an island where the people have no fish to eat).  Back in October he did pop his head out of his mausoleum, like some ghoulish groundhog, to prove to the world that he hadn't died yet.   Calling rumors of his death "stupid" Yankee imperialist lies, he also posed for a few very scary photos.

Despite his disappearance,  the moribund 86-year-old tyrant has been nominated for a seat in the Cuban parliament, along with his brother Raulito.  It's good to be king.  Yeah.  And it's so great not to hear from him.
