I know there are plenty of writers on this list. Since we all have time to
sit at our computers (and this is good), might I humbly suggest that we each
pound out a mere 700-800 words on the reality in Venezuela (perhaps even
sharing some talking points) and submit dozens of guest columns to the local
newspapers. I do this from time to time, and while the corporate press is
ovewhelming us with Chavez' "resignation", my own experience is that I
occasionally get through.
I'll be doing mine today. 700 words. Accessible language. There was no
resignation. It was a coup. Arbnez, Allende, Chavez. Chaves did NOT
violate either law or constitution. Chavez DID make some valuable changes
(from the people's point of view). CIA/NED fingerprints everywhere. Oil
Let's take this conversation out of the circle.
