Fidel Castro's Living Room is 'Dictator Tacky'

Hoping to dispel rumors of Fidel Castro's death, the Cuban government has released images of the leader greeting a series of celebrity guests in his never-before-seen living room, and boy is the place tacky. The Miami Herald notes that "to be fair, nothing visible in the photos is remotely as embarrassing or disturbing as, say, the witchcraft tools or the giant portrait of Hitler that invading U.S. troops found in the home of Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega; nor as downright weird as the mural of bikini-clad women enslaved by trolls discovered in Saddam Hussein's townhouse after his overthrow." But that's about the nicest thing you could say about the place.

Curbed Miami wonders if all the decorators left in the revolution. >>
