I am not the type of person to wish bad health on anyone. However, I am very eager to see the people of Cuba freed from the dictatorship of Fidel Castro, and freedom is not likely to come until the generalisimo passes from the scene. A story appearing in the L.A. Times
(free registration required) has the leftist mayor of Bogota, Colombia saying that Fidel Castro appeared sick and exhibited "physical limitations" when he visited with the dictator in December. Actually, the most encouraging aspect of the story is that Mayor Luis Eduardo Garzon, a former communist, was critical of the totalitarian nature of the Castro regime and the state of things in Cuba.
