Fidel Castro

Fidel Castro has reportedly suffered an embolic stroke ... and his health is so bad, the 86-year-old former leader of Cuba can barely eat, speak or recognize people.

The news is being reported by El Nuevo Herald, which says it spoke with Jose Marquina -- "a respected doctor" who assured the paper he has firsthand sources and information about Castro.

The doctor told the Herald, "[Castro] could last weeks like that, but what I can say is that we’ll never again see him in public.”  

The last time Castro was seen out in public was back in March -- when Pope Benedict XVI visited Cuba.

It's too bad no one can just put a bullet in his brain pan like Castro personally did to so many of his countrymen. Please let Hugo Chavez be next.

On the other hand, if he lives another 30 years as a vegetable, who would say that's not a measure of Hell on Earth.

Not only can you be angry about what he did to his own country, you can be angry about the fact that Miami is the Cuba the Cubans wished for. Thanks for that Fidel.

Maybe that will mean less illegals all over South Florida and maybe Miami will have a shred of hope to stop being the new Havana and way over 60% Spanish speaking. Maybe the local businesses will stop hiring only Cubans. Maybe English will actually become the primary language here. GOD they are everywhere!!!!!
