The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Daily Dictator

It's a funny thing. Every single time there's a rumour of Fidel Castro's death floating around on the internet, there follows literally a few days later a flurry of photographs "proving" that Fidel is still alive. If that's not enough of a testament to the iron grip required to operate a Dictator-ocracy, I don't know what is. But in my search for a good article to link, I did run across another blog well worth reading, considering my favourite hobby horse, so at least I've got that.

Dance, puppet! Dance!

Handwriting experts, I expect you to do your best: The rest of this story is up to you!

I'm glad to see you enjoy my humble dictator blog. I'm equally glad to see you poking King Hugo full of holes as well!
