Reuters just breathlessly reported that “Ailing Cuban leaderstepped down on Tuesday 49 years after taking power in an armed revolution.” Wow, the questions abound:
* First, since when do dictators for life get to “retire”?
* Who plays him in the inevitable movie? (My dark-horse candidate would be Michael Douglas as we know him from King of California):
* What does he do now? If his health were better, I’d love to see him help Jimmy Carter become a part-time carpenter, part-time freelance gadfly to the world’s leaders.
Fidel, marketing revolutionaries cry out for your voice in the blogosophere. You started a revolution. You are living through one now.
