Granpa Skips Parade to be on Granma

Granpa couldn’t make it to the May Day parade yesterday in Havana, but he was all over Granma.

As those who lived in Cuba will tell you, attendance to these political acts are “strongly recommended” by your employer, the regime, who graciously gives you time off so that you can show your support to your employer.

Folks who don’t have the revolutionary zeal , or blind faith in Cuba’s Cult of the Absurd, and don’t participate in the revolutionary events, are “counseled” and it could eventually lead to loss of employment.

Does that mean that Raul will now fire Fidel for skipping the parade? I mean he was well enough to write another op-ed piece in Granma.
