  1. Quico, what happened to the comments? Are they all gone?
    I couldn’t create a Google/Blogger account because the window is too small and can’t be stretched.

  3. Cristina,

    Epa vale. Mira, I’m still trying to figure out all the details of Google’s new Blogging software. It has lots of cool new features – like check out that GoogleNews feed in the right hand column now – but also has some drawbacks (like the fact that it doesn’t seem to work with the old comments software.)

    We’ll try it out for a while. If everybody hates it we’ll go back to the old look…but I kind of like this one because it makes MY life much easier (putting up polls, for instance, is very quick and painless with the new system, but incredibly time consuming with the old one.)

  5. ugh…

    maybe the old one was less user-friendly for the blogger, but this one is hideous. It reminds me of the layoff of more mediocre blogs. They is no way to use the google features without having this formatting?

    I agree with Cristina that it is a shame the old comments are gone.

  7. Where the heck is the opposition capitalizing on such news big time?

    This is no abstract news item for people with an appreciation of constitutional principle and legality. It’s everyday and near, like crime, like shortages.

    You know, there are still some orientales (and in general, in the Venezuelan interior) who consider themselves chavistas. They surely do not like it either, when they have to change the fridge’s motor or remain without air conditioning.

    I would rub this kind of news on their sores, with salt and red pepper. So as to cruelly remind them that they voted for it just like they voted for the adecos before, and are likely to be duped next time around.

  9. Re: Nicaragua

    Daniel Ortega and his F$LN set up a F$LN controlled company to handle the oil from Chavez. One half of the oil is to be paid over many years at very low interest. Ortega is not reporting to the people about how the windfall is being spent. Everyone thinks he and his F$LN mayors is putting the money in their pockets. The National Assembly gave the Venezuelan Ambassador a letter saying the people of Nicaragua are not responsible from repaying the part Ortega is getting. If Venezuela expects to get this money back then they should ask Ortega and not the people of Nicaragua.

    The IMF is not happy because they can not get any information about this “off the books” oil transactions.
