Fidel Castro has met with six U.S. lawmakers in Havana a day after his brother, Cuban President Raul Castro had conferred them, Reuters is reporting.

The Cuban leaders and the U.S. delegation — all members of the Congressional Black Caucus — were exploring normalizing ties between the communist island nation and the U.S., which has maintained an embargo against Cuba since Fidel was ruler.

Castro reportedly has been ill over the past year but appeared in good health during his meeting with the lawmakers.  So they all downplayed talk of a post-Castro policy.

With so much talk about the U.S. lurching toward socialism, it only makes sense to talk to someone who knows all about it.  You know, an expert.
