Happy Birthday to You.

Fidel Castro turned 80 yesterday. This is a picture released by 'Juventud Rebelde', the Cuban government newspaper, of the recovering leader. A few other pics can be found on this link. One has the old chap reading a recent paper to prove his survival. They look pretty convincing, though the population have been warned to expect a long convalescence, with possible setbacks. A inadequate translation of J.R. here. An english version of what is considered the Cuban Pravda, 'Granma', as unlikely as the name seems, is well worth a look.
