    Raul seems more a pragmatist than an ideologue. Once Fidel shuffles off the old mortal coil Cuba will become the next Vietnam. This is one of the early steps to prepare for that day.

    You'd be surprised who's still alive. Eli Wallach, **** Van ****, Fidel . .

    So Castro has a gift presented to him by a foreign dignitary. Its a tortuga. The dignitary explains that Turtles live a while. "how long?" Asks Castro. "150 years," explains the guest.

    "that's the problem with pets." says Castro. "just when you get attached to them, they get old and die."

    Most shockingly Keith Richards still lives.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    You know who really surprised me? Olivia DeHavilland and Lauren Bacall. Alive and well.

    But how depressing would it be to get on the internet and google yourself and the only story about you is a listicle listing all of the people thought to be dead but are actually still alive.

    Abe Vigoda shocked me. He looked really old when he was on Taxi.

    Was Abe Vigoda on Taxi and Barney Miller? Or are you thinking of Judd Hirsch?

    Blows my mind. I guess I was thinking about Hugo Chavez.

    Fidel was on his death bed, what, 5 years ago? Are you guys sure he's not dead? We should summon the ghost of Hextall to be sure.

    Yeah, looked like he was a goner, but he escaped the Grim Reaper somehow.
