#1 I have been asked to say something at this time. The first thing came into my mind was the last verse to the Eagles song, "Hotel California."
Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
"Relax, " said the night man,
"We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave! "

#3 National Assembly President is picked today.
No clue as to how this is going to play out, but in due course Godgiven Hair is going to snag the job, I figure sometime after the massive devaluation that's gotta happen. Then there's Adan.... the mean Chavez...

#4 If Hugo is such a saviour to Venezuela, why don't they have better health care in-country? Does Venezuela by any chance have something like ObamaCare?

#5 With Hugo gone his replacement looks to be far worse.More of the same business but accelerated.
More like a Castro in his early years.

#6 Gone is good, better than if he recovered.

#7 Dale, I'm to the point where these 3rd world thugocracies should get as bad as they can as fast as they can. The worse the better. They buy it, they pay for it.

#8 they should freeze his head - in case science comes up with a cure in some future date. Do it now. Don't wait for his death

#9 All these years of wishing the worst on him and asking God for it. And it happens. Next we'll find out he had aids and ruptured testicles.

#10 Agree with the Commodore, the head must be taken to insure the revolution!

Down with the CIA
Fatherland Socialism or Death...
but wait a bit please.

#11 HUGO + Beret have been fighting his affliction since the late 1970's + early 1980's - I do NOT believe he will just quietly accept the inevitable.
