Fidel is a Survivor

One day the good Lord will take Fidel Castro away. ~ George W. Bush
Actually, it looks like Fidel is one of God's favored people. American Presidents since Fidel Castro took power in 1959 who Castro has outlived, to date:
~Dwight Eisenhower
~John Kennedy
~Lyndon Johnson
~Richard Nixon
~Gerald Ford
~Ronald Reagan

Fidel has survived the Cold War, an American invasion, and 638 CIA assassination attempts including such creative ideas as a poisoned ballpoint pen, exploding cigars, and my personal favorite - recruiting an ex-lover to smuggle a bottle of cold cream laced with poison into Fidel's bathroom.
