Revolution Day pretty much cancelled for lack of interest

Historically, Revolution Day in Cuba has been a big commie party, featuring long-winded speeches by Fidel and his brother Raul, plus cameo appearances by other well-known Marxist no-accounts.

Looks like this year, though, nobody wanted to bother.

i guess even old passionate revolutionaries feel the effects of age and apathy

Maybe they're starting to get the idea that the revolutionary shoes is switching to the other foot. They are steadily losing power. May THEY live in interesting times.

I'm willing to bet that within ten years we'll start to see an economy developing in Cuba like that of China... communist in name, capitalist in fact. Fidelito will become like Mao in China, mostly forgotten except as a iconic superstition.
