Cuba, Castro and the Boyz

Fidel Castro has announced his resignation as president of Cuba and commander-in-chief of Cuba's military today, according to a letter published in the state-run newspaper, Granma.
Granma. What does that mean?

Granma is the yacht that was used to transport the fighters of the Cuban Revolution from Mexico to Cuba in 1956 in the overthrow of the the Bastisa Regime. It’s on display in Havana, according to our crack team of researchers at Wikipedia…right next to the U.S.S. Minow.

Granma appears on the front stoops of everyone’s house in Cuba each morning, thrown from the curb by geriatric women in wheel chairs.

Have you seen pictures of Fidel Castro lately? Looks like Willie Nelson without the braids. Which brings to mind the fact that you never see Willie Nelson photographed with Fidel Castro. Never see them in the same room together.
I’m just saying…
I wonder if Fidel can sing…

The Democratic Race continues to entertain…the Hillary Clinton campaign is accusing the Barak Obama campaign of plagiarism…and the Obamarators are pointing fingers at the Clintonites. Sounds like a case of he said she said what said…

Toshiba will no longer manufacture HD DVDs, effectively ending the long-running battle with the rival Blu-ray for a dominant high-definition format. Does this mean I have to convert my video library from Beta to Blue Ray VHS?
