The Day the Dictatorship Died

Big news today...Fidel Castro has stepped down as head of state and, probably more importantly, head of the military in Cuba. Other than possibly disproving the previous premature reports of his death, what does this mean? Who knows what it means for Cuba. What does it mean for Americans? A proliferation of pretentious talking heads droning on about the humanitarian and economic impact on 'Cooba' when you know all they care about is getting those cigars so that they can continue to be smug and self-important during their weekend soirees at 'the shore'.
