Quote of the Day

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on August 8, 2010


In his first official government act in four years, Fidel Castro only spoke for about 10 minutes to the Cuban Parliament Saturday, nowhere near the hours-long orations that marked nearly 50 years of the revolutionary leader’s presidency.

And instead of thundering on about Cuba and the issues that most Cubans care about, including economic reform and freedom of expression, he stayed close to the subjects that have marked his words since ceding power to his younger brother Raúl Castro, including the threat of nuclear war and climate change.

Sara Miller Llana. How very descriptive of the Castro regime’s propensity to ignore the needs of its populace.
