Fidel Castro Dead At 90

Fidel Castro, the Cuban strongman who brought Communism within striking distance of the US during the cold war era is dead.  Castro who had the longest rule of any non royal was an iconic figure in my lifetime, known for his military uniforms, his beard and cigar.  In 2008, he stepped down from the Cuban presidency, letting his brother Raul lead the nation.
