the question on everyone's mind -- about a certain organ.

> 2) CBS Reports: The Last
Revolutionary, a documentary on Fidel Castro narrated by Dan Rather, will
air July 18. In Monday's (July 1) New York Post Michele Greppi reported
that Rather and two producers "gave a sneak peek at Victor's Cuban
Cafe last week." So, during the two days Rather spent with Castro in
April what kind of questions did the CBS anchor pose?
Greppi reported: "Rather
said that for 'men of a certain age'a common topic is prostate cancer. 'I
grant you, this may not have been a proper question,' Rather told
reporters. Nevertheless, the newsman asked the dictator, whose 37 years in
power ranks second only to Jordan's King Hussein: 'Prostate OK?'
'OK,' replied Castro, who turns
70 in August."
30 years of oppressing and
killing his people and Dan Rather's first concern is whether his health is
OK. Just when you thought Rather couldn't get any wackier. --
