Fidel's son Alex Castro reportedly says his father is in good shape despite a long public silence that has again fueled speculation about the 86-year-old former president's health. A journalist for the state-run newspaper Venceremos quotes Alex Castro on Friday, Oct. 12, 2012 as saying "the comandante" is going about daily life as normal, reading and exercising.
