Today, rumors erupted on the Internet that Fidel Castro might have died. As of this post, I'm unaware of an official confirmation or denial and the country will hold its collective breath until the answer is known...
...or not. Americans, careful never to be made fools by faulty intelligence, have decided to just not care. According to Google Trends, the story of Castro's alleged death was "On Fire," but still ran a distant second to "Miss Teen USA." And, even then, >20% of searches came from Miami and New York, cities with vibrant Cuban-American populations. I guess America has just had its fill of infamous dictator deaths this decade; cute teenagers who sing showtunes and pledge to save puppies around the world, however, will never get old.
