Changes in Cuba

Whoa. This is too big not to mention briefly.
HAVANA - Fidel Castro temporarily relinquished his presidential powers to his brother Raul on Monday night and told Cubans he underwent surgery.

.The Cuban leader said he had suffered gastrointestinal bleeding, apparently due to stress from recent public appearances in Argentina and Cuba, according to the letter read live on television by his secretary, Carlos Valenciaga.

"The operation obligates me to undertake several weeks of rest," the letter read, adding that extreme stress "had provoked in me a sharp intestinal crisis with sustained bleeding that obligated me to undergo a complicated surgical procedure."
The guy is 80 years old. I hope he can hold on for another couple of years. I shudder to think what Bush might do if he dies before the end of the term.

I'd say it's a good bet that's the plan Lester.
