The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

A Dictatorship of Fools

The press sure is taking the latest pronouncement from Cuba's one-party dictatorial regime pretty seriously:

I reckon this means it's finally safe to say Fidel está muerto, eh?

It is nice to see the AFP throw a little "uncontested" bone to Al Gore. Of course, Cuba is the government that has a slight tendency to lock up those who don't vote for the regime, but hey, maybe by the time we institute that particular electoral policy, Gore will stand a chance at winning something.

More on Cuba's mockery of an electoral process here.
