For me, the death of Fidel Castor was one of those "where were you moments." I was visiting my Cuban-born parents in Chattanooga, Tenn., when the news broke. It was Friday morning, the day after Thanksgiving.
Merry Christmas! This special day is just a week away, so it is time to get your presents bought and wrapped. And just remember: Christmas is more than a day.

Oh, the games the Donfather is playing. He does know how to take his pound of flesh.
It isn't quite Christmas Day, but Rep. David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, the speaker of the Georgia House, has already received probably the best gift he ever got in his life.
