Fidel Castro dead at 90
Looks like 2016 is marching on and has claimed someone else. This time it was Fidel Castro, the Cuban prime minister and was the first secretary of the Communist party of Cuba. A lawyer by training, Castro led the Cuban Revolution and transformed the island into the first communist state in the Western Hemisphere. What many do not know is the Fidel Castro was the son of Spanish immigrants. In any case, I sincerely hoped he passed away peacefully. 90 years old is a grand age to reach!
