Fidel Castro resigns!

Although it was for reasons of illness, rather than for the good of the people, it is still a landmark moment in history. Although I'm not one of those "Cuba fucking sucks" American dudes, I still didn't really like the guy.

An interesting fact came about recently... that one of my favourite NES games, Guerrilla War, was about Che Guevara...and if you played co-op, the 2nd player was Fidel Castro!  They changed it all for the North American release tho, so I had no idea  :x

I think we are a little ways off from this, but it would be nice for Cuba to go to the way it was before Castro.
It really is a beautiful place.
