Mabye James Lileks Has Something Here

Hugh Hewitt refers to a post by James Lileks about a look “back” at 2007. One entry cause me to pause and think of the legacy that Fidel Castro leaves behind:

Fidel Castro died and lay in state for 48 hours while Cubans filed past
to pay their respects in the traditional manner. Experts estimated that
24,302 liters of spittle were expelled. Brother Raul declared a
“National Day of Mourning and Mopping Up.”

The thought that popped into my head was that this wasn’t unbelieveable.
Gerald Ford has passed – and people look back at his legacy with respect and honor. Fidel cannot hope for any of this at the end of his life.
