Dime tres logros de la revolución, pregunta un chiste cubano. La respuesta, obvia: la educación, la salud, el deporte. ¿Y los tres mayores fracasos? Unos segundos de silencio... y el narrador contesta: "El desayuno, el almuerzo y la comida". La broma, que es muy seria, adquiere estos días especial actualidad; casi un año después de que Fidel Castro delegara "provisionalmente" todos sus cargos por una grave enfermedad, aliviar las desesperantes estrecheces y padecimientos cotidianos de la población es para el Gobierno interino de Raúl Castro una prioridad.Tell me three achievents of the Revolution, asks a Cuban joke. The obvious answer: education, health, sport. And the three greatest failures? A few seconds of silence... and the joke-teller answers: "breakfast, lunch and dinner". The joke, which is quire serious, is these days aprticularly current; nearly a year after Fidel Castro "provisionally" delegated all his offices for a serious illness, to alleviate the daily suffering and scarcity of the population is a priority for the interim government of Raúl Castro.


Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
