More Halloween News: Fidel Walks!

That's the bad news. The good news is: he looks TERRIBLE.
I was on the bike at the gym today when I saw the most recent footage of Fidel in his "recovery". Like we are supposed to believe he's doing great. Right. The guy seems to be on his way out, but we all know that this will never happen. He will live forever but, if the footage is any indication, in a much diminished capacity. The man looks like hell, and I bet he was under lots of makeup, if there wasn't anyone behind him actually holding him up with wires. He walks slower than a snail, and to raise his arm and push an elevator button took him almost as long as one of his speeches. But this cheesy symbolic gesture about his relentless macho papi stamina just shows the world that the guy is a pale shadow of what he used to be. Which is not to say he is leaving us any time soon, unfortunately.
