Fidel is apparently still alive

The latest news is that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro is apparently still alive, still looks old and feeble, and from the looks of the photo, he's also fond of sharing tight, awkward embraces with Vietnamese top dog Nguyễn Minh Triết.

The elderly Castro appeared on Cuban state television (ie, on all channels) to discuss such jaw droppingly banal topics like how great flush toilets are in Vietnam. Actually, considering how much of Castro's lower intestinal tract has been removed, I imagine the caudillo himself is probably relieving himself into a colostomy bag, but I digress.

Fidel's ridiculous television interview only dealt with softball questions about how he's feeling and what he's been eating, which means the more serious questions about whether he's going to try and drag his carcass back into the executive office to replace his brother Raúl. I would have asked him when he plans to kick the bucket so Cubans can stop living in a moribund Communist dictatorship, but there are just some things you can't say in Cuba, you know?
