Oh the Parallels

Today in the news:

Fidel Castro declares himself the former president of Cuba, clearing the way for another slobbering dotard to take over -- his own brother. What a coincidence! The Castros must be the Kennedys of Cuba!

Toshiba drops its HD DVD format, clearing the way for another superfluous DVD format to take over -- Blu Ray. What a development! I eagerly await the avalanche of advertising sophistries intended to convince me that Blu Ray technology deserves to exist, and that I can't possibly settle for watching King Kong Vs. Godzilla or Il Grido or Better Off Dead on a regular old DVD.
