James Kalat: Long-lasting Castro

January 8, 2013 

Long-lasting Castro

Just think about all our advances in technology over recent decades: personal computers, the Internet, email, cell phones, the iPad, global positioning systems, HDTV, satellite TV and the discovery of black holes and the Higgs boson.

Amazing. Still, if John Kennedy, who died 50 years ago this November, could come back to life, it is not obvious which would amaze him more: our advances in technology or the fact that the Castro regime is still in power in Cuba!
