Another week, another repressive North African dictator skedaddling. Libyans have risen en masse to protest and destroy symbols of the superannuated revolutionary, Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. Tellingly, the rumors have him fleeing to Venezuela, which offers a chance that the "Day of Rage" fever could follow him across the Atlantic. Are we allowed to fantasize about the fall of the Cuban regime? It's as ripe and outmoded as any in the Arab world.

The news is moving too fast to know what to believe. Hat tip to Carol.
