Fidel Castro is relinquishing his power in Cuba. I guess he joins Josef Stalin as one of the most “successful” tyrants of the 20th century. Stalin died peacefully in his sleep after a murderous rule over the Soviet Union that left millions dead. Fidel followed suit. He did not kill quite as many, but that was probably due to the lack of opportunity rather than intent. I suspect the afterlife will not be so kind to Fidel.
