Castro temporarily relinquishes power to brother during surgery

Well, it's probably too soon to say "Farewell, Fidel," but the Cuban dictator is undergoing intestinal surgery and he temporarily relinquished power to his brother, Raul this evening.

The island country Castro took over in 1959 had one of the highest standard of livings in Latin America. Castro's dictator predecessor Fulgencio Batista led a prosperous nation; Castro's Cuba is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere.
