Health Care in Castro's Cuba
According to this website, the following photos were taken recently at a Havana hospital that Castro has praised as one of the"most modern in Cuba." The first shows roaches on the hospital floor that were smashed by the shoes of patients and family members, the one in the middle is a curtain next to the bed of a patient getting an IV (the black specks are flies!), and the one on the right is a sink used by doctors who treat samples taken from orthopedic patients.

The same site David points us towards also references Forbes Magazine's recent report that Castro is worth $550,000,000. The link for that is http://www.forbes.com/billionaires/. (Click on "Royals and Rulers.")
