Was it Alan Greenspan, who turned 80 just over a month ago? Or Jerry Lewis, who celebrated his 80th a couple weeks later? Or perhaps Mel Brooks, who hits the four-score mark in June?

Nope. Humphrys is, in fact, worried about the Queen being "mean" to....aging Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Iain Murray summed it up nicely when he said on NRO's The Corner, "All you need to know about the BBC is included in that one remark."
