    Default Castro is Dead

    We always knew he couldn't live forever; however, it was beginning to look like he could...I was but a 7th grader when he took over way back when we thought he was a hero fighting a bad dictatorship...the very thing that proves the point, to be careful what you wish for because you might get it...

    I'll be 71 next month...That is a long time for such an evil person to be in charge.

    It was sitting there just waiting to be used. As usual, I couldn't help myself.

    He's the only leader of Cuba I remember. Although I was to young to see and understand the horrors that were taking place.
    When he got sick many years ago, I thought that was it.
    I don't see much changing but see things loosen up a bit under Raul. He's no spring chicken either!
    I found a preacher who spoke of the light but there was brimstone in his throat
    He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check
    I flipped my channel back to CNN and I lit another cigarette

    Maybe
    there will be hope when Raul too is gone. I can remember as a young child growing up hearing of people going to Havana for wonderful vacations...it was so close and offered so much in the way of beautiful beaches and casinos and wonderful food at really affordable prices... When we lived in West Berlin (1969-1971) and when we'd go over into East Berlin (excercising our "right of access") or drive through East Germany to West Germany, we'd see billboards advertising Cuba as a great vacation spot...though I doubt it was the same under Castro as it was before Castro.

    When I was in the 6th & 7th grade at Volusia Ave Elem School there was a PE teacher (Mr. Vodnicker) who would talk to our classes about Castro and because it was so present in the news at the time and it seemed like he was going to "save" the people and be this wonderful benefactor and deliver freedom to the people of Cuba. Also, the fact that the Dictator Batista had a home in Daytona I am sure also added to the interest of the people in the area at the time.

    Then just a few years later (while in the 12th grade at Mainland Sr High School) there was the Cuban missile crisis--always seemed like Cuba was so relevant during my growing up and becoming an adult years.
