Fidel's Dying wish....

From the Chosun of all places:

Right before falling ill with intestinal bleeding, Castro and a group of aides made a surprise visit to the construction site on July 11. The elderly revolutionary was dressed in military uniform and limped a little...The Cuban leader was quoted as urging his people to learn from the diligence and aggressive working style of Koreans.

Its good to see Dan Rather finding work at the Chosun Ilbo after leaving CBS.

You know, Chosun likes to give space to statements from people whom it likes to appear in a bad light, such as Kang Jeong-koo (the people's comissar of sociology), Hanchongnyeong, pres. Roh etc, but here, it seems, the national sentiment has overridden the issue of a communist dictator, who after all says that Koreans are more reliable than Japanese and better than Chinese and North Koreans. If Fidel had hailed Roh Moo-hyun, Chosun would have printed that as well, showing what kind of dictators feel warm towards Roh's government
