A blog about life under, and resisting, a dictatorship
Diehl got it all in, beautifully expressed. Thanks for this, Daniel.
Do you reckon they read the WaPo at the OAS?
Sure they do, and at the very least, Chaderton would.Imagine if Jackson Diehl et al could have seen what lay behind the cosmetic façade, at least 13 years ago. Not sure if he was one of the many journos who gave oxygen to the propaganda churned out by the Vzlan Information Office.
and then there's this to add to the emptiness of a failed city in a failed country, laid to waste by socialist steroids and Cuban apparatchiks.http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2013/01/28/130128fa_fact_anderson
Comments policy:1) Comments are moderated after the fourth 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 basic rules. I will be ruthless in erasing, as well as those who replied to any off rule comment.3) COMMENT RULES: Do not be repetitive. Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule). This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
