Politics and Boat/cars are cruisin'

Fidel Castro stepped down as President of Cuba today! BIG BIG DEAL Y'ALL!
I got these images of him from a lovely slideshow NYTIMES has..

do any of you check the NYTimes Slideshows? I'm addicted to them. Can't stop. Don't stop, won't stop.
but Fidel did stop, and I don't care what our nation has been saying about him, I think that he is a revolutionary man, and should, and will be honored 4 eva.

I want to go to Cuba. I want to go to Cuba. I want to go to Cuba.

-Mr. Castro, right, and Che Guevara- in Havana in the early 1960's Mr. Castro overthrew the dictator Fulgencio Batista to gain power in Cuba.

found this image on fuzzysquid and I'm not sure what its suggesting, but Kosovo declaring independence is also a huge political issue that this week is taking on.

And now ladies and gentleman:::::::::

the moment you've all been waiting for:::::::::::::::::::::::
the shipping car!
It can go from land to water, to underwater!
If I could read Russian, then I would be able to tell you something about it, but alas, I am but a measly American girl with knowledge of only one language and a translator on my widgets that only does one or two sentences, no paragraphs.

but seeing is believing. So see this and weep.

I love that in all these pictures, the people are super suave and stylish and totally photoshopped.
