81- year- old Communist leader
announced today that he is resigning as

(END SOT) He was a thorn in the side of democracy


for decades! And now that Fidel Castro
has called it quits�the world and
especially Cubans wait to see if
freedom of speech and other civil
liberties will finally become a way of
life for residents of the island
nation.





(natz, Havana)





So far, reaction on the streets of
Havana has been subdued. Word that the
ailing 81-year old dictator was
officially stepping down came overnight
and people are going about their daily
routines.





(natz in Spanish)



This resident says change will happen
and it is time for Cubans to depend on
themselves.





(Roberts Bridge)



Traveling in Africa�.President Bush
welcomed the news�and is pledging to
help Cubans realize democracy. And he
is calling on the international
community to work with the Cuban people
toward free elections.





Sot: President Bush (06:41:55)



"Eventually this transition will lead
to free and fair elections, and I mean
free and fair."





(natz)



In Miami�where thousands of
Cuban-Americans live�. some are
skeptical of change... since Castro's
brother has been handed power.





Sot: mos (10:09:02)



"I think it is important that we keep
the pressure on and that we call for
democratic freedom for Cuba."





Sot: mos




For now, Castro's brother, Raul, is in
charge.. The 76 year old has been
acting President since July of 2006 and
he has hinted economic reforms are
needed in Cuba. But whether those
reforms will signal the birth of a
democratic society�remains to be seen.

looks like all of the various race
shops that surround the Queen City.


But step inside the 40 thousand
square foot facility and you'll find
the only wind tunnel of its type in


North America.


For several thousand dollars a
day race teams can slap a car on a
steel track belt that simulates speeds
and race conditions up to 180 miles an
hour.


JEFFREY BORDNER


The air is forced over, under and
around the car by a 22 foot fan that is
powered by a 51 hundred horsepower
motor.


The race car is strapped down to
the stainless steel belt that is only 1
millimeter thick. There are sensors
under the tires and the steel belt
drives the wheels simulating motion
across a race track. The entire
process takes place on a turntable
allowing engineers to measure downforce
and sideforce on the car.


JEFFREY BORDNER


Some would argue that with all of
the teams running the same body style

templates - that this type of testing
is now obsolete - but in fact finding
any of edge is now more critical than

session takes 10 hours. In Concord, NC
