The revolution is over

Instead of fomenting international socialism (which they were no good at, anyway,) Cuba is entering the international business world by ... suing somebody. Actually, it'll probably end amicably, but the state-owned Cuban cigar shoppe brand, La Casa del Habano, which operates in a number of countries (not the US, obviously) is suing a Detroit-area smoke shop, La Casa De La Habana, over name infringement.

I don't give a damn, obviously, for the outcome, but I think it's a hoot that Cuba is flexing this kind of non-ideological muscle. If we could just get a cease-and-desist order on Hugo Chavez now, forbidding him from saying the name, "United States," it would be a diplomatic step forward.

And speaking of the lunatics of the world's leadership, did you see that Ahmadinejad got not verbally, not politically, but physically slapped by one of his peers, according to some of the Wiki leaks stuff? Can a shoe-flinging or pork-pie assault be far off?
