What wonderful news. It's not being reported widely yet, but it is news that would bring rejoicing to many Cuban refugees.
It will be interesting to see if anything changes. Fidel's brother Raul has been running the place for the last couple of years, but Fidel himself was a murdering, torturing, bastard who kept the country under his thumb for years. The last of the old-style communist dictators, it's a shame that his death didn't come at the end of a rope.
