Venezuela has been all over the news. Looking up the place, I was interested to see, a thing I hadn't known, that according to one version of the etymology, Venezuela is named after Venice. Interesting!
I'm afraid my interest in Venezuela runs out right about there, though. I have no clue what is happening down there and my only strong feeling is that whatever it is, I hope we stay the heck out of it.
In regard to Venezuela, I invoke the spirit of Sir Winston Churchill, quote: "I have lived 78 years without hearing of bloody places like Cambodia."
