An Apology to Héctor Agüero

Héctor Agüero, the senior member of the National Assembly, deserves more respect than we accorded him yesterday.

The Venezuelan interwebs – including Caracas Chronicles – had a field day yesterday making fun of PSUV old-timer Héctor Agüero‘s speech at the opening of the National Assembly. It’s since been brought to our attention that Mr. Agüero suffered a stroke, which accounts for his difficult to understand speech. We apologize for the offence caused.
