The Detroit Free Press: Funeral for Chavez a bid to continue his legacy
More than 30 heads of government, including Cuban President Raul Castro and Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, were scheduled to attend. U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks, a New York Democrat, and former Rep. William Delahunt, a Democrat from Massachusetts, represented the United States, which Chavez often portrayed as a great global evil even as he sent the country billions of dollars in oil each year.
I wonder if Venezuela has any traditions regarding funeral pyres. I'm sure we've got some spare drones around somewhere that could help them out in that department.....
In other news, Hugo Chavez is still dead, killed by socialist healthcare.
