Fidel Castro stays silent on health, but not U.S.
A new newspaper column signed by Fidel Castro and published Thursday again attacks U.S. policies toward the island but does not address his health.

Cuban leaders are strongly denying the rumors going around South Florida that their leader is dead.

Recovering Cuban leader now writing for posterity
Nearly a year since he last stood before a throng of thousands for one of his usual hourslong speeches, Fidel Castro has found something to replace his podium: his pen.

Castro has written more than a dozen articles in the past two months, in what experts view as a move to position himself as an ombudsman of world affairs. More than half of his essays take on global energy issues such as ethanol, but they never tackle Cuba's myriad domestic problems.

Others have been reflective or even melancholic. Some meander in incoherent directions.
