Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

Castro Dead?

Rumors were flying yesterday that Fidel Castro had died, but the Cuban government denies the report.

Not to worry, there'll be more spurious reports of this in the future, I'm sure. In the time honored tradition of Stalinist dictatorships, there must be at least two more false reports before he can actually die.
