Ever get the funny feeling someone is looking right at you? That's what I thought after seeing this picture on my computer screen.
I figured the Cuban leader was thinking, "Hey, I thought we got rid of you."
I had left Cuba in 2005 when the Dallas Morning News closed the bureau there. I returned a year later while on assignment for the Houston Chronicle, whose foreign editor Chris Shively considered the Cuba story to be important. I took this picture in July 2006 during one of Fidel Castro's last public appearances.
