high fidelity

what do you think will happen to Cuba when Fidel Castro dies? their "revolution" has endured for 47 years. have people have adjusted to this way of life or will they cast off authoritarianism and embrace freedom and democracy uber alles with a bang like Iraq has?

I predict that when Fidel croaks US Marines will be sent to Cuba immediately to "preserve order" while rich Cuban-Americans from Miami make their way to Havana to regain control of the country. In ten years the island would be covered with Ford Explorers, Starbucks and Club Med resorts. This wouldn't be a bad thing entirely. It would mean mi esposa and I could actually travel there--a destination we have placed at the top of our list by the way.

Or the US military could expand their Gitmo gulag to the entire island. lord knows we need more space to house all these enemy combatants captured during the war on terra. but considering what the US did to Haiti (the coup d'etat against Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004) I doubt they'd Castro's successor stay in power for more than a year.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
