Fidel Castro silence sparks speculation on health

HAVANA (AP) — It's been more than a year since Fidel Castro burst back on the scene with a spate of public appearances and dire warnings of nuclear Armageddon. But after a flurry of activity that quieted speculation about his exit from the world stage, the Cuban revolutionary's revival tour seems to be over.

Castro has not appeared in public since a key Communist Party meeting in April when he seemed unsteady and unusually frail. He has also virtually stopped writing his trademark opinion pieces and didn't make a statement or release a photograph on his 85th birthday in August.

...

In Venezuela, a newspaper claimed Fidel's supposedly failing health explained why President Hugo Chavez remained in his home country for a third round of chemotherapy, after receiving treatment in Havana on the first two occasions.

The Cuban government, as always, has remained silent.

It takes a long time to die from old age and congestive heart failure. The next time he catches a cold or a flu...bienvenidos a infierno.

Adios, Fidel. (again..)

The first time I remember hearing this rumor was 1962 when I was not old enough to be allowed to cross the street by myself.

I don't pay attention to them anymore.

Deep in the underworld, a faintly familiar voice, from a tortured soul wishing for one last drop of Chivas Regal, calls out:

"I er ah, hey, Fidel! What's taking you so damned long?"

“Did Fidel die again?”

Why can’t the corrupt, murdering communist bastard just die and stay dead?

Then again, maybe Satan is ramming something up him as we speak...

I hope he enjoys trying to get podium time with Nikita and Mao waiting..

Who knows, had he chosen a different path, he might have made it to the Major League..

Fidel Castro has long been one of Fate’s grimmer practical jokes.

Don’t look for him, or his countless acolytes, to disappear any time soon.

If Castro is silent (long enough) it may signal his demise.
