After 59 Years As President of Cuba, Fidel Castro Steps Down

Hosted by
In the Communist Party press today, Castro announced the end of an era although it’s uncertain what will happen next. We’ll talk to a reporter about the response he got when he spread the word on the streets of Havana. In Miami, the Cuban-American community is not what it was before, and we’ll get the reaction of a new generation. President Bush says the US will help Cubans establish democracy—but not without conditions. All that and a history including the Bay of Pigs, Soviet missiles and economic blockade.

Note: Today's WWLA is a re-edit of today's To The Point .
