Fidel Castro Dead? (Update: No.)
Apparently a lot of people suspect that the frail comandante of Cuba has died, so we went down to the bodega and asked a guy they call Cubano, who at first seemed to confirm the report; but, after some minutes of conversation and gestures, we found that he merely wished Castro dead, and had no intelligence to suggest that this was the case. We're taking that as a denial. Also, Castro Death Watch doesn't have it, and we imagine they'd be among the first.
