Stop The World, I Want To Get Off

One of my co-workers, a black guy who I frequently discuss politics with, just explained to me why Castro was such a great guy.  "You know why he rose to power?"

Because he wanted absolute power?

"No!  It was to stand up for black Cubans!  Castro was about equality and humanity!"

...he murdered hundreds of people who simply disagreed with him.

"Okay, yeah, he was a dictator!  But he also stood up for black Cubans when no one else in the world would!"

I responded with unabashed sarcasm -- And while we're on subject, that Al Capone was quite a marksman.  And Lizzie Borden sure knew how to express her feelings instead of repressing them.

"Oh, come on, man, that's totally different!"

Did I just break my rule about discussing politics?  Yes, I did.  Bad Peter.
