The Russian jeep carrying the ashes of the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro broke down and had to be pushed for a period on Saturday.Though Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's ashes were interred in a private ceremony Sunday morning, after nine days of official mourning, the somber procession was interrupted by a mishap.  The Russian-made jeep hauling the trailer carrying Castro's ashes broke down.  Soldiers had to be push it for part of the journey to the place where the ashes were interred.

The breakdown of the jeep came in the midst of adoring crowds who chanted "Long live Fidel!"   It provided a somewhat ironic glimpse of what was wrong and what was right with Castro's Cuba. While his legacy inspires some, especially rural populations in Cuba, the rest had to parse their grief with his legacy of autocratic (oppressive)  government, inefficient (corrupt) bureaucracy, and stagnant (highly black market) economy.
