It's the Wednesday before, four days 'til gametime, and here's another dose...
So this would not be a good week for Fidel Castro to die. I suspect the reaction to his demise across much of Miami -- outright celebration -- would be portrayed by the gathered press as an embarrassment to South Florida.
Already we are ripe for criticism for that city-organized event at the Orange Bowl upon Castro's death. There were plans for music and T-shirts, plans to make it nothing less than a party, until an outcry forced the city to retreat. Loved the line on CNN: "When Castro dies, Miami will party like it's 1959."
Let the people who despise Cuba's dictator dance in the streets upon his death if they wish. It's a free country. But how unseemly for Miami's city and county officials to have a hand in the carnival.
