someone has to take care of U.S. social problems...

As I had previously posted, Washington has not responded kindly to Venezuelan initiatives to provide low-cost heating oil and gasoline to lower-class communities in the United States. Fortunately, Hugo Chávez doesn't care, and neither do I.

The Associated Press has an article detailing similar programs in the Northeast (why they are to this date focusing on this region of the country remains, I must confess, a bit of a mystery). In the planning stages or already in the works is assistance in Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York City, and four Native American tribes (a chief of one of the tribes called it "probably one of the greatest decisions for our tribe in years.").
