Cuba: Fidel Castro setting up "collective style of governance"

Maximum Leader doubts the ability of any one human to take his place. So he has left instructions that his duties be divided between some number of his most trusted flunkies. They are, according to this report (it's from the AP, so take with grain of salt):
His brother Raul, head of the armed forces
Carlos Lage, Vice President
Felipe Perez Roque, Foreign Minister
Francisco Soberon, Central Bank President
Jose Ramon Balaguer, Health Minister
Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, another Vice President
Esteban Lazo Hernandez, yet another Vice President
Ricardo Alarcon, Parliament Speaker
