More blood in Hugo Chavez hands

A 15 year old student was killed yesterday in Merida. That is, a 15 year old that would not have been there -which side he was supporting being entirely immaterial- had Chavez and his thugs not forced suspension of RCTV International from cable companies on 23 January. I think I am going to go with Caracas Gringo version here, and reiterate that Chavez is actually fomenting unrest in Venezuela. Only that can save him from an almost certain loss of control of the country's Congress in the coming elections this September.
