Fidel Castro Resigns

The end of an ego era.
Cuba's ailing leader, Fidel Castro has announced he will not return to the presidency in a letter published by official Communist Party paper, Granma.

"I neither will aspire to nor will I accept, the position of president of the Council of state and commander in chief," he wrote in the letter.

Let's see how long the Wet Foot/Dry Foot Policy continues.

[UPDATE] Here is the full message (in spanish) If I get ambitious, I'll translate in the morning, or at least hunt for a link to someone else's efforts :)
