Truthdig - The Big Blowup Over Venezuela

Haven't read it, but it's by Marc Cooper of the Nation, so is probably worthwhile.

Chavez is a mixed bag, to be sure, but he's actually helping poor people on the ground in Venezuela -- and even here in the US, in lieu of our own government, by selling heavily discounted home heating oil to poor folks in NYC and Boston.

I note that the Congress did pass some home-heating relief, for the record.
