The loons over at the Communist Party USA (Hi Rosy) send their best wishes to Fidel.
When I was at La Ideal for lunch yesterday the topic was Fidel's health. The majority of the customers, and Mario the owner were in on the conversation. It was split over dead/ soon to be dead. However I heard more than once "I am a Cuban, but I am an American now!" No matter what happens to Fidel everyone agrees that this is the beginning of the end. No one at the counter expected a mass exodus to return home to Cuba.
Nobody wished Fidel a speedy recovery, nobody wished him dead either. It is an eventuality that is anticipated with great hope and some trepadation.
If the CPUSA kooks were to grab a bocadillo and a cafe con leche (fires me up for an afternoon of boring meetings) and tell the patrons at La Ideal that they wished Fidel a speedy recovery the laughing would continue late into the night.
Mr. Cruz, a fixture out front of La Ideal said "Always so many lies you can't believe anything." CPUSA would be wise to listen to someone who knows firsthand.
