celebrants waited to see if the old infermo, fidel castro would perk up enough to have a late birthday party. Now it appears that he isn't going to be getting any better or living to the age of 140. They have already postponed the celebration so long that castro's decomposing corpse stinks so much the birthday boy won't be allowed to attend his own party.
Val Prieto at Babalu blog points out that most Cubans can't wait for the curtain to fall on castro's little hour upon the stage. I hope fidel chokes on his birthday cake. And that hope outlives him.
