Now the Fidel Castro has officially stepped down as President of Cuba, the big question is whether history will absolve him. It's true that Castro has helped improved Cuba's health and education standards, but it is also true that Cuba was one of Latin America's most developed countries in 1959. According to the U.S. State Department, Cuba's 1959 statistics looked as good or better than today's (http://www.state.gov/p/wha/ci/14776.htm). Do you agree, or not?
