In Cuba, there is an old saying which says "No hay peor ciego que el que no quiere ver." Translated literally and figuratively, it means that "The worst blind man is the one who refuses to see."
One hour after Cuban Televison, worldwide news agencies and newspapers reported a new video of Cuban President Fidel Castro, this is what Babalu Blog had to say:
AP Reports New Castro Video
The Associated Press' Will Weissert is reporting that a new video featuring Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has been aired on state television. At the moment, I have no way of verifying the veracity of the information in the report - as all signs point to Castro as having died in August. Babalusians can view the report here.
The report is highly suspect, as insiders within the Castro clan had reported back in August, that the ailing dictator had been suffering from a fatal septicemia. I'll be in touch with various contacts inside the island throughout the evening and will post whatever inforation [sic] I am able to obtain.
UPDATE 8:38 p.m. EST
Just got off the phone with sources in Havana who verify the video's broadcast and spoke of a great deal of confusion regarding how this is possible. After having watched segments of the video, it appears Castro is speaking from the same hospital room beneath the Consejo de Estado where he has allegeldy [sic] been all along. That's all I've got folks.

JG: Are these people suffering from an early form of dementia or what? I wonder if they will know what [sic] means after 'inforation' and 'allegeldy'? I will not tell them to go to hell; I will tell them to go here.
Babalusians: sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite! Take two aspirins and call the doctor in the morning!
