Digging for Bolivar, seen from the New York Times
I still cannot bring myself to write about that offense to all of us when Chavez ordered the seizure of bolivar bones for his political needs and other assorted necrophiliac obsessions he might have. But Simon Romero does at the NYT. The poor guy tries to report as objectively as possible but one can tell how grossed out he was not only by the sceance content of the whole disgusting show but by its implications as to the quality of the people that rule over the fate of Venezuela. It is hard to be a foreign correspondent in Venezuela these days.
