Fidel Castro was last seen in public in July 2006 and has become a nefarious recluse ever since. He is like the Howard Hughes of notorious dictators. Now his BFF Hugo Chavez says we'll likely never see Castro or his beard in public again.
"That Fidel in his uniform who walked the streets and towns late at night, hugging the people, won't return," Chavez said during his Sunday television and radio program. "That will remain in memories."
Because if history remembers one thing about Castro, it will be his love for late-night uniformed hugging on the streets.
