Fidel Castro, the forerunner of the 20th century Latin American communist wave and leader of the Cuban revolution, died last night, the New York Times reported. He was 90. To be quite honest, I thought he died in the late '00s after he let his brother Raúl step in for him after a bout with diverticulitis that put him out of commission.
The biggest affected from Castro's death? The people of Cuba. Celebrations have spilled onto the streets of the island as Cubans have been cheering, banging pots and pans together, and are happy in the fact that "the world is lighter today" along with hopes of a democratic future.
