According to the Castro regime's news agency, ACN:
Fidel and Raul: Honorary Delegates to 9th Youth Congress
SANCTI SPIRITUS, Cuba, Feb 20 (acn) Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro and President Raul Castro were elected on Friday the first Honorary Delegates to the 9th Congress of the Young Communists League (UJC).
During the provincial assembly of the UJC in Sancti-Spiritus, the First Vice-president of the Cuban councils of State and Ministers, Jose Ramón Machado Ventura, pointed out that this is a well-deserved decision, due to the history of the two leaders.
Please note that the date of this headline is today, February 20th, 2010 -- not 1950.
Therefore, Fidel is 83, Raul is 78 and Machado Ventura is 79. These are the three leaders, in order, of the Cuban dictatorship.
Is that the best they can come up with for a "Youth Congress"?
Needless to say, normalizing relations with this decrepit regime would be a huge step backwards.
