Raul Castro Officially Takes Over

In an expected move. Raul Castro was selected as president of Cuba. He succeds his older brother Fidel Castro, who has stepped down after almost fifty years. The 76 year old newly appointed leader has held the position of first vice president for the last forty nine years. Every since the communist government first became the ruling pa. I would think he is familiar with what his brother has been doing all this time. Nothing much is expected to change. The new guard will have to wait a little longer. I don't think there will be any sweeping changes persay, but I do expect some to take place eventually. To prevent a civil uprising, if for no other reason. The working people are tired of trying to stretch less than $20 a month.
