Psst! Fidel is dead: someone please tell Fidel. (updated)

Most of the country doesn't really give a rat's ass, but I live in Miami, where Fidel Castro's health and well-being are discussed at every cafe and bar in the county.

It started on babalu, and by Friday even architecture-centric Boom Or Bust was speculating.

Stuck on the Palmetto
does a great job of re-capping the last week.

The sad part is that the gomers running Babalu are unrepentant; this isn't the first time they've declared that Fidel is dead. It's not even third or fourth. They don't seem to understand that it's THEIR credibility they are undermining.

No, they will cry, we were right! Fidel IS dead, it's just HIS fault that he won't admit it! He is refusing to die just to make us look bad!

The cause of the hullabaloo is revealed at the WFOR website:
"Premature rumors of Castro's death were pushed into overdrive on Friday by a meeting of local officials to go over their plans for when Castro really dies and a road closure in the Florida Keys that was actually due to a police standoff."
