How long can this go on?
El Sur reports on the Venezuelan business. I find this stuff weirdly compelling. A people on strike, a leader who is a jackass, democratically elected but, in the four-hour speechifyin' Castro mould, a Supreme Court which may or may not be making it up as they go along, and everything else. And international oil prices heading north on account of how Venezuela is dirty big producer of the stuff.
Sheesh. A population on strike. For 40 days.
