GOOD BYE, HUGO CHAVEZ
One of the few world leaders to recognize and call George W. Bush for what he really was, is gone. While I wasn't the hugest fan of Hugo Chavez's policies, I was even less impressed by the U.S. media's coverage of him. His democratically-elected voice was a welcome one, oftentimes talking about policies on poverty and resisting unfairly controlled resources in the region. This is, of course, Colby Dong Il riding off from Chavez' memory into the sunset, but no one has made a Colby Chavez so work with what you get, just like a democratically-elected president (read: not dictator) from an oild-rich and developing country. Cancer at 50? I have my doubts. . .
