Castro's health improving

Dammit, won't this old bastard ever die? How many people do you have to kill to get God's attention, anyway? (And for that matter, how many Montecristos do you have to smoke? I might just take up cigars myself...)

Mugabe is hanging on quite resolutely. Have you ever read Autumn of the Patriarch? Seems old dictators are much like the energizer bunny.

Yes, Mugabe is another unkillable monster unfortunately. (According to persistent rumour however he has a dummy rubber penis that was made in China, so perhaps less of him is actually human than we might imagine.) You're right that dictators are unstoppable -- that legendary sword of Damocles just dangles there and almost never seems to actually fall.
