Isn\'t it ironic?

Let's face it: none of that crap in that god-awful song by Alanis Morrisette was ironic. Rain on your wedding day is not ironic, merely a bummer. Same with a black fly in your Chardonnay. But this, now this could inspire a hack songwriter:

Cuban leader Fidel Castro has long prided himself on Cuba's doctors and free public health care system, but that system seems to have let him down after he fell ill in July , U.S.-based doctors said on Tuesday.

Based on a report in Tuesday's edition of Spain's El Pais newspaper, the doctors -- who have no first-hand knowledge of Castro's condition -- said Castro had received questionable or even botched care at the hands of health experts on his communist-ruled island.
