Today, this dark past has no visible history in the cheerful, lovely park. There are rides, funhouse mirrors, and verdant grounds landscaped with trees, shrubs, and flowers. Peacocks and other birds wander the park adding to the harmonious atmosphere. Farm animals live around the little Norman farm where visitors can feed and pet them. There are several other gardens including the kitchen garden which grows edible, native European plants like strawberries and raspberries which compliment the green. There are multiple restaurants within the park open for ice cream or lunch. No wild animals can be found on the menu.
When Fidel Castro died last week, there was no question about what he'd be buried in. Over the last half century, Castro was one of the leading proponents of the Uniform Theory of Style , ., the idea that a man should pick a signature outfit and stick with it forever. In theory, this sends a variety of positive signals to the world. It says you're extremely sure of your choices and your identity. It says you have no time to devote to the mundane routines of day-to-day living. It makes you easy to spot in a crowd, or buy presents for. All good, and generally speaking, we think the Uniform Theory of Style is an acceptable, albeit fairly boring way to go, especially if, like Castro, you plan to live to 90.
