I am biased, but that's maybe because I'm a sheep of the American media. The American media and government made Chavez out to be a terrible individual. He frequently harbored ill will against the United States, but never really took any action. And I'll believe what the papers and TV people tell me: he was a bad man, he stymied political freedom, and Venezuela is better off without him. That's what I say.
Goddammit, Chavez the new Bolivar. If Bolivar was the subject of Venezuela's secular religion I wonder what Chavez will be.
