And he killed Chomsky too.

What can I say? I though this was an exaggeration of Fox News until found the news in the NYT.

"At a news conference after his spirited address to the U.N. on Wednesday, President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela expressed one regret: not having met that icon of the American left, the linguist Noam Chomsky, before his death."


Apparently the Chomsky is dead thingy is not right. He was referring to John Kenneth Galbraith, a man Chavez had the indulgence of reading his economic theory books when he was a child! I didn't know that Chavez was so smart! Certainly he come across as a charlatan to me!

What would be Chavez's epitaph? "Here lies the golden child, missunderstood prodigy, President of Venezuela, he has it all and yet fucked up everything he touched!"
