Following the script

Nothing happens in Cuba unless it has been orchestrated to a T. Imagine living in a country where anything that you say in public could land you in trouble with the authorities, which could mean prison time. The following video shows a Cuban reporter asking the “man and woman on the street” their opinion about fidel’s health. The people interviewed know their script, they know how to recite it and recite it well; all are in support of fidel and the revolution. You can bet your bottom peso that the interviewees were not randomly selected.

What else were they expected to say in Havanna? It's only when you pull them to the side and identify yourself as a member of the "comunidad" will they be more open.
