I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I don't know why we're supposed to hate Cuba and Fidel Castro so much. Whatever caused this lingering animosity happened way before I was born, and all that's left now is a vague sense that today we're supposed to celebrate the news of the official end to Castro's regime. I realize they're godless Communists and all, but I was born too late to really appreciate the Cold War thing. My formative years were the 1980s when Russia was already declining, and the biggest Communist threat we faced was Dolph Lundgren in Rocky IV. I guess I need to read some history to get a better sense of this.
