Read Heard the one about the President and the supermodel? (The Poor Mouth), on Naomi Campbell meeting Hugo Chavez. I love the phrase "a revolutionary and exquisite white dress" (what Naomi was wearing).
Plus, SHOCKING NEWS: This will suprise regular readers, but I find little to disagree with (to use Scoop Shachtman's phrase, on a similar experience with Robert Fisk) in Mike Gonzalez's article on Hugo Chavez in the current Socialist Review. It's actually pretty spot-on, apart from the rather icky last paragraph.
