Hugo Chávez has finally lost it.
In his increasingly desperate attempts to control the parallel market for dollars, he has denounced the "Dólar Paralelo" blog, which regularly lists the parallel market rate, as illegal, and vowed to invade its offices … as soon as he can locate them.
In case he doesn’t yet know it, he is going to have to control the whole damn Internet if he thinks he’ll be able to intimidate bloggers. Which is what’s coming, I guess.
So, from this little corner, our solidarity to Dólar Paralelo. And in case you were wondering, the parallel rate today Bs.F. 8,30 for sellers, Bs.F. 7,50 for buyers.
