    Fidel is Dead

    Via CNN, this headline:
    Cuban President Fidel Castro is transferring power provisionally to brother Raul while he undergoes an operation, Cuban TV announces.

    As far as I know, Fidel has never handed power over like this. I can only conclude the reason for this "power transfer" is to put Raul in charge while still keeping the semblance of Fidel being alive. He will need to secure his own position before revealing his brother's death.

    Update: 10:00 EST, still nothing new to report. I think that he is dead or dying, considering that 'his' statements are being read by a secretary.
