Crazy day around here with the news that Cuban President Fidel Castro announced his resignation (and the ongoing construction work/drilling on the outside of the building, but that's another story). The first hour is a bit up in the air for now as we try to find people who can talk about Castro's resignation, and what it might mean going forward, if anything. For as long as I can remember, Fidel Castro has run Cuba and been a thorn in the side of American administrations. Now, there's a new Castro in charge in Havana: Raul. Keep an eye on this page for Gwen's update on how things come together. One way or another, we'll get at this story, and your thoughts on what happens now... In Cuba and the US.
