Cuban Heroes

After years of speculation about the Cuban President’s health, Castro has stepped down handing over the revolution to his younger brother.

Castro wrote in a letter published online in the official media that he would not accept a new term when the newly elected parliament meets on Sunday.

“I will not aspire or accept – I repeat I will not aspire or accept, the post of President of the Council of State and Commander in Chief,” read the letter in the Communist Party daily ‘Granma’.

'Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish.
