Wow. This morning feels like history!
I just woke up and it’s all over CNN and NPR
already that Fidel Castro has resigned. A half century of communist rule, over. Just like that. Reporters are already congregating at Versailles on Calle Ocho here in Miami, and I am sure when I leave the safe quiet of my home, drivers will be honking their horns in jubilance, and there’ll be an inflated police presence on the street to make sure celebrations don’t get out of control. Or will the response in Miami be more muted and cautious? I’ll let you know later. One thing’s for certain — we are living in interesting times.
I’d love to hear from any Miamians on this — how does the news on Castro make you feel?
