Venezuala, Haven For Humanity's Defenders

More than a little bit tiresome. A party for the dictator, the liberation theologian, a Maoist member of the Politburo of the ruling Communist Party of Nepal, an Egyptian heavy thinker and on and on, some wearing Birkenstocks, others guayaberas, whatever that is. This is the World Meeting of Intellectuals and Artists in Defense of Humanity. No less. Dateline: Caracas, Venezuela.

Read all about it in the Tuesday New York Times. By the way, President Chavez was seen smoking cigarettes.
