Does anyone else find it curious to see that Fidel Castro couldn't be bothered to show up for the funeral of the "unofficial" First Lady of Cuba, yet he has somehow found time to blog about it?
Here's a picture from today:

Cuba's President Fidel Castro paid tribute to his late sister-in-law, Vilma Espin Guillois, who died Monday of an undisclosed illness, writing that she 'never backed down from any danger' and that her example is 'more necessary than ever.' Espin, wife of acting Cuban President Raul Castro, was for decades considered the first lady of the island's revolution. (AP Photo/ Javier Galeano)
But last week, at Vilma's wake, he was a no-show:

Guillois died June 18, 2007, at age 77. Guillois' civilian and military decorations are displayed below her photograph. (AP Photo/Prensa Latina,Ismael Francisco)
