Fidel Castro. the long-serving premier/dictator/strongman of Cuba has died. That island country will now undergo its’ own transition as America transitions into a new Presidential administration.

Given the strident mood in America right now, don’t bet on it unless the country becomes (suddenly) and enthusiastically democratic.
