Our Wednesday editorials:

The Pierce County jail’s staffing problems aren’t just driving overtime costs sky-high — they are also hobbling its ability to provide health care services to inmates.

Don’t cue the band yet over news that Fidel Castro’s long reign is over. His brother and handpicked successor has raised hopes for modest economic reforms, but isn’t the leader the country needs for meaningful democratic change.
