Maximum Leader

"Once, during the first days of the

[Cuban] Revolution, up in the mountains, an assassin climbed into his tent, put a gun to his head, and, just before pulling the trigger, allowed the Maximum Leader

[Fidel Castro] a last word. The last word went on and on, in a hoarse whisper, until the assassin gave up his gun, convinced of the jefe's extraordinary cause, because the jefe himself seemed so convinced."

[Castro also survived gunfire, coup attempts and near poisonings.]
