Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Breaking: Fidel Castro is not dead. But he recently sat on a chair with wheels. What does this mean? We have no idea. Though experts tell us that Castro will likely die. Sometime. Eventually. Because he is mortal and pretty damn old.

The photos show Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega meeting with Fidel in both April and December 2009 and were published on three leftist Nicaraguan news sites today.

The Miami Herald describes it as a "hospital-type chair." Other photos from what is likely the same day show Castro standing in front of the chair with little support.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
