Cuba: Fidel's Miami farewell party

Val Prieto answers those who believe that the party being planned by Miami's Cuban community to celebrate Fidel Castro's death is in bad taste: “Im going to pop open “la botellita”, wave my flags, honk my car horn, scream at the top of my lungs, dance in the streets, hug my neighbors…the whole fidel castro is f*****g dead enchilada. The following morning, I will, undoubtedly have the worst and best hangover Ive ever had in my life.
