The Blogging Comandante


It must have dawned on the brilliant minds running the revolution that none of Fidel's recent blog posts addressed the long suffering Cuban people.


So tonight they had the blogger in chief e-mail his latest post to the AP,(Associated Parrots), where he tells Cubans about his illness and convalescence.




I tell everyone simply that I am getting better and maintain a stable weight of about 80 kilograms (176 pounds)," he wrote. "It wasn't just one operation, but various. Initially it wasn't successful and had a bearing on my prolonged recuperation."


He added that the greatest dangers to him now are age and the effects of not taking care of his health for years.

Most people in Havana believe that he is dead and that the reason that there hasn't been any blackouts in Havana lately is because they're afraid his corpse will thaw out if the power goes.


The AP reports that the e-mailed statement "will likely appear tomorrow on newspaper front pages and be read on the TV news."


No doubt that the blogger-in-chief must not be doing that well since they can't even show one of the highly edited and scripted propaganda videos featuring the Adidas Tyrant.

Finally, after 48 years, fidel does something for the Cuban people.
