Cuba Libre ! – Fidel Castro Resigns !


The only connection to Upstate New York that this short post has is that I remember like it was yesterday, the night that some friends and I were celebrating New Year’s Eve at the Hotel Syracuse in the 50′s, and the music stopped, the band leader announced “Fidel Castro has taken control of Cuba!”

Yeah! Hoorah! Cuba Libre’s all around, (coke, lime juice and rum,) and we all cheered the night away…

Little did we know, our closest beautiful little friendly island paradise was headed for fifty years of despot controlled misery and would be shunned by all free thinking people.

Well let’s try it again, “Cuba Libre !” Let’s hope the future becomes much brighter for one of our nearest beautiful neighbors.
