The Venezuelan electricity crisis summarized for Canada

Since it is Semana Santa in Venezuela, light writing to be expected around here.  So for your enjoyment a little summary of the electricity crisis in Venezuela for our dearest Canuck audience.


  1. Daniel, if you're interested, I could edit the articles you submit to the news media. This was very well written, but there are a few mistakes that could be easily fixed. I'd like to volunteer to do this for you!

    Well, they edit it over there. Still, if you have press experience and are willing to edit, write me.

  3. Good article, Daniel. Very clear andc, I think, correct about causation. I DID think that your editor had missed a few slightly-misstated idioms, ie. "by way of illustation", but that was really quite minimal in impact overall.

  4. Daniel, I don´t have press experience. However, having been an English/Spanish major, and especially since I'm a native bi-lingual, I believe that I'm particularly able to edit your posts.


Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
