Fidel Castro - not everyone's hero...

With the old thug on his last legs, Miami is speeding up its preparations for dealing with how Cuban-Americans wish to mark his passing. Given that some of them fled Cuba on inflated tyre inner tubes and the like, they do not think as highly of him as some European politicians, and there is unlikley to be much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Instead, the Miami Orange Bowl is being readied. This, note, has "a regular capacity of 74,476 orange seats, and can seat up to 82,000 for concerts and other events where additional seating can be placed on the playing field".

I forsee gunfire into the air and muchos rum and cigars being consumed , all to a latin beat.

Agreed. Given Latin exuberance, rum and Coca-Cola, roaming mariachis, rhumbas in the streets, a 72-hour party.

(Gunfire in the air- no. Miami's wild, but it's not the Middle East.)

Pero, mucho gusto!
