"Miguel Diaz-Canel is simply a SERVANT for the Castro family plantation--and like many servants for powerful dynastic families throughout history--he's also a EUNUCH!" (according to a hideous intransigent)

    Someday you two need to actually sit down and have a bambi y beer(s). Not that the conversation would be any different... but the format of 10 minute interviews wouldn't be interrupted. :)

    D-C is a slug. They can do whatever they want with him, including discard him whenever it suits them. Somehow Primo Carnera comes to mind. He is absolutely a tool, nothing more, and he looks distinctly "thick" and eminently malleable. The people with real power did not want somebody who could really upset the apple cart, but rather a decoy and placeholder, somebody who can buy them enough time so they can spend the rest of their misbegotten lives in the manner to which they've become accustomed, and obviously undisturbed by anything like the claims of justice.

    The "expert" message is clear: Cubans should be grateful for even this cosmetic "concession" from their dictator. After all, they're just little island people of color, and their place and function has been duly assigned to them by their betters (you know, like Canadians). If they don't have liberty, let them make do with catering to the desires and fantasies of foreigners.
