Castro Cedes Power to Brother

Cross-posted from The Dread Pundit Bluto

From the Akron Beacon Journal:

In a stunning development, Cuban leader Fidel Castro temporarily ceded his presidential power to brother Rul Castro late Monday due to ''an intestinal crisis'' that requires ''complicated surgery,'' according to a letter read on Cuban national television.
Fidel Castro, 79, would never give up power, even temporarily and to his own brother, if he weren't facing a serious medical crisis.
