Andrew Jackson and Fidel Castro

I have been reading newspaper accounts of January 1959–refreshing my memory, not of the events, just their sequence–of the time when Fidel Castro gained power. There were lots of things that had to align just right for Fidel to succeed and for Batista to sneak away in the dead of night and it occurred to me that Fidel would have had no chance if Andrew Jackson had been president (instead of that wishy-washy Eisenhower who knew nothing of making war) Apparently Andrew Jackson was mad as hell when Castro won.

    Unless I don’t understand the time warp, Fidel Castro v Andrew Jackson — two different centuries — but the Lemurs were interesting. Be safe — Phil and Deanna — heading for
    England, Wales, Scotland on May 21. Special regards to you and Ruth -a Scotch quality control journey.
