Of course you would Raul, in a plane loaded full of money before the people come to burn your ass alive.



Cuba denies Fidel Castro is seriously ill

HAVANA (Reuters) Cuban President Raul Castro dismissed rumors that his older brother Fidel Castro was at death's door, saying he was mentally and physically active and fit enough on Wednesday to meet with Argentine President Cristina Fernandez.

"He spent time with the president, he is exercising, thinking a lot, reading a lot, assisting me and helping," Raul Castro told reporters at Havana airport where he was seeing off Fernandez after her three-day visit to Cuba.

"Soon I'm going to make a trip to Europe. Do you think I could leave from here if Fidel was gravely ill?" he said.

Speculation about Fidel Castro's condition had risen in recent weeks after he stopped writing opinion columns and did not attend celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Cuban revolution that put him in power on January 1, 1959.

The ailing 82-year-old has not been seen in public since July 2006 when he underwent surgery for an undisclosed intestinal ailment but maintained a public profile through his writings, which suddenly stopped after a December 15 column.

Raul Castro did not say why his brother's columns, published in state-run press, had ceased, but promised they would soon return.
