Comment Fidel Castro reverted before he died (Score 1) 3

I'm convinced the reason the Pope doesn't say much about his meeting with Fidel last year, is because it's protected by the seal of the confessional, and that Fidel made a good confession before he died.

I'm equivalently convinced he ain't in heaven yet. His "room" in purgatory is going to be a busy place over the next several millenia, as everybody who was ever hurt by him is going to be getting an interview in the afterlife. In serial.

Finally, a good point made on a right wing talk radio station this morning. Fidel had three great accomplishments as dictator: He improved health care, education, and housing on the island of Cuba. He also had three great failures: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

About the time the White Zombie started hitting the drag races at Portland International Raceway. Look it up (though that's a purpose-built electric car that has two totally different modes- cruise around town slowly, or dump a full 1000 KW/h battery pack into two 1000 horsepower motors in 3.6 seconds for a quarter mile speed burn).
