Castro's Achilles' Heel

Miami Herald is reporting Cuba's aged power plants are causing blackouts that sometimes last more than 12 hours. The story reports all sorts of solutions the Castro government is proposing and doing in attempts to solve the crisis. I have one suggestion--get rid of Castro.
The Achilles' heel to political and economic stability is going to be the power structure -- the electrical power structure,'' said Jorge R. Piñon, a former Amoco oil man who studies energy issues at the University of Miami. ``Electricity is important, in some cases, as important as food.''
While I feel for the Cuban people, this is truly good news. Perhaps this is what it will take to rally the Cuban people against the Castro government. When will Cuba say, "I've had enough!"
