A dictator retires

The thug turned "President" of Cuba, Fidel Castro, announced that he was stepping down from power today.

Castro has been in power, controlling Cuba with an iron fist, for my entire life and then some, almost 50 years.

My wife asked an interesting question. Since communism is all about the worker, does that mean that Castro will retire to some communal retirement home? Will he have to squeak by on a government pension like every other retired person in communist Cuba? I am sure that is the case, after all in communism it would be unseemly for someone (even a hero of the revolution) to be given preferential treatment.

Finally... Maybe they will have a chance for free elections, or a less totalitarian gov't
