You know you’re in trouble when…

…the man who designed your country’s government admits it’s not working. 

Former leader of Communist Cuba Fidel Castro said yesterday that the Cuban system doesn’t work.  Hi brother and the country’s current leader, Raul Castro, has agreed in the past, though coming from Fidel the statement is somewhat more shocking.

This may not be a huge step, but so far it’s perhaps the best news out of the country since Fidel stepped down.  It’s not exactly an embrace of private property and the free market, but maybe there’s hope for Cuba yet.
