if you're the sort who opens hir wallet to the suffering multitudes, this seems like a good time to do that. like, 900,000 times.
further south - anyone paying attention to Venezuela, besides Venezuelans?
I don't know how to feel about Chavez, and his whole "Fatherland, socialism or death" thing, and the changes made to the Venezuelan constitution that will allow him to be President-for-Life (am I reading that properly? do I have that right?) but I'm not Venezuelan. I'm a big fat spoiled american, and maybe there are delicate nuanced subtleties that make Chavez just the thing to cure what ails Venezuela.
any musings on the subject are absolutely welcome. comments wide open. if anyone has some good recommended reading so I can do my homework and not be an uninformed big fat spoiled american, that would be great.
as for Mexico: well, yeah, fuck. Welcome to the 21st century. Nope! no climate change here!...
of course, that was then, this is now.
but that, also, was years ago. and he was just one person.
