He was 90 years old. He ran his country with an iron fist. He provided his people with health care and education and all he asked for in return was their freedom.

Fidel Castro is dead.

Fidel Castro, the fiery apostle of revolution who brought the Cold War to the Western Hemisphere in 1959 and then defied the United States for nearly half a century as Cuba’s maximum leader, bedeviling 11 American presidents and briefly pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war, died Friday. He was 90.

His death was announced by Cuban state television.

So, what will this mean for the Cuban-American relationship? Can we finally convince Congress to drop the stupid embargo?

Will brother Raul be able to hold on to the reins of power now that his iconic sibling has gone where the goblins go, below, below, below? Will Cuba become part of a free Western Hemisphere?

Will I be able to mail order Cohibas without breaking the law?

Time will tell.

Retired from his position as a writer/editor at the National Institutes of Health, Bill Schmalfeldt saw the willingness of a cadre of right wing idiots to destroy the life of an ex-con who had re-entered public life having served his time. He spoke out against this pack of hyenas and paid for it with false attacks on his own reputation and filthy, foul and profane mockery surrounding the death of his wife in 2015. Unbroken, Bill continues to write for Breitbart Unmasked and his private blog, http://theclintoniconoclast.com -- He now lives a quiet life in his hometown of Clinton, Iowa, doing a daily afternoon air shift at MAC 94.7 FM in the city of his birth.
