Planning a Party at the Castrodome

You know the time must be getting close with stories like this one: “Miami Plans Castro Death Party in Orange Bowl”

MIAMI — With Fidel Castro seriously ill, the city of Miami is making plans to throw a party at the Orange Bowl when the Cuban president dies.

The city commission earlier this month appointed a committee — whose official job is to “Discuss an event at the Orange Bowl in case expected events occur in Cuba” — to plan the party. Such a gathering has long been part of the city’s Castro death plan, but firming up the specifics has become more urgent since Castro became ill last summer and turned over power to his brother, Raul.

City Commissioner Tomas Regalado, a Cuban American, came up with the idea of using the venue for an event timed to Castro’s demise. The Orange Bowl was the site of a speech by President Kennedy in 1961 promising a free Cuba and in the 1980s it served as a camp for refugees from the Mariel boatlift.

Castro “represents everything bad that has happened to the people of Cuba for 48 years,” Regalado said. “There is something to celebrate, regardless of what happens next. … We get rid of the guy.”

Ramon Saul Sanchez, leader of the Miami-based Democracy Movement organization, worries about how a party to celebrate a man’s death would be perceived by those outside the Cuban exile community. He also pointed out that even when Castro dies, his communist government will still be in place.

“The notion of a big party, I think, should be removed from all this,” Sanchez said. “Although everybody will be very happy that the dictator cannot continue to oppress us himself, I think everybody is still very sad because there are still prisons full of prisoners, many people executed, and families divided.”

It is true that Cuba’s problems won’t end with Castro; nonetheless, some serious celebrations and parties are in order when that Marxist bastard finally dies.
