Hugo Chavez, Venezuela's President, thinks the USA is going to invade his country - for oil maybe. He says the USA has a top secret plan called "Balboa," that is designed to remove him from office. Chavez is buddies with Fidel Castro and he doesn't say nice things about W. Chavez addressed the United Nations last week and blistered W on Iraq and WMD. Chavez says W always disses the UN so the UN should relocate. Not a good idea. NY is a blue state and NYC Dems need the jobs that come with the UN being in NYC. Chavez is lucky the USA is preoccupied in Afghanistan, Iraq and New Orleans. On the other hand, W's folks may think they can make a case to annex Venezuela based on $3 a gallon for gasoline. Of course, that would pi__ off folks of the Latino persuasion.
Speaking of W, his nephew ran afoul of the law (and the law won) last week in Austin. His grandma saw the jail mug shots and said grandson looked "scary" .... awwww!
