One of the many random thoughts that screamed through my head when my mother was thought to be at death’s door last October:

“It isn’t possible for Jerry Falwell and Fidel Castro to outlive my mother.”

Even for a devoted atheist like me, such a thing seemed so unjust as to be ridiculous, completely beyond all comprehension.

Well, Falwell’s dead and my mom’s still kicking, so maybe I can maintain my sanity for a while longer after all.

Now, how about you, Fidel?
