Barring unforseen circumstances, i.e. The Man dying, we are going to go offline for a few days. We’ll be back toward the end of next week.

Happy holidays, everyone. Hug your loved ones, and appreciate every moment. Don’t put your faith in idols with feet of clay, for you are bound to be disappointed (and come across as a lunatic in the process).

The Hugo Chávez era is ending, and a new one is beginning. It may be worse, it may be better, but it sure will be different.
