Who would have thought a few years ago that Fidel would outlive him.

I hope that whoever takes over isn't worse than Hugo.

CNN reporting the military is being deployed "to ensure citizens safety".

There has been chatter that Chavez died before the new year. This will be one to watch for sure.

Indeed. I wouldn’t bet too much, but I would place a bet that Chavez has actually been dead for a while and his cronies are just now making it public. Chavez hadn’t been seen in public for months, so he could have died quite a while ago.

Although the odds of this is probably .01% I really don't think its absurd to think the CIA (or some other agency) would do something like that

Sean Penn: "Today the United States lost a friend it never knew it had. And poor people around the world lost a champion."

I have a lot of respect for Sean Penn, but when it comes to Hugo Chavez, Sean Penn is an idiot.
