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

Fidel Castro hasn't been retired for even a week. Still, he just couldn't hold off on publishing an anti-US missive. The latest, he claims: President Bush wants to annex Cuba.

''I had planned to stop writing these reflections for at least 10 days,'' Castro wrote. ``But I didn't have the right to keep quiet so long. We have to open ideological fire against them.''

Blah, blah, blah. The good news: his column's logo shows him in a swanky business suit, not those military fatigues of the past.

Can't the man act like a normal retiree and play golf, go to the Early Bird Buffet Special or play shuffleboard already?

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.
