Happy 50th Anniversary!

It's 50 years since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, an event that really did "change everything":

"The dictatorship has been defeated. The joy is immense. And yet, there still remains much to do. We won’t deceive ourselves by believing that everything will be much easier from now on; perhaps it will be much more difficult." - Fidel Castro, Jan. 8, 1959, the day he entered Havana.
An interesting article summarizing those 50 years, particularly with respect to what Fidel had to say above. And another worthwhile summary.
