The real question is how faithfully Raul will hew to the company line now that Fidel is no longer there to provide "guidance."

I'll admit to not being much of a scholar on things Cuba but from what I have seen Raul was the more bloodthirsty and viscous of the two.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Yeah, I know. He's always oozed really slowly out of the bottle.
This member used to have another name, and the name that this member used to have was fistful.

I know I'd feel uncomfortable trying to say where somebody's going after death.

No, but there are a hell of a lot of them I'd like to be a fly on the wall during the literal "come to Jesus" meeting.

Wonder what He had to say to Fred Phelps.

For DeSelby:

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

For DeSelby:



Truth.  Lived in Miami for a while.  The only place in the USA where speaking Spanish might help one with middle class or higher aspirations, as almost the entirety of Cuba's middle and upper classes left Cuba for Miami.
