Chavez ........ Bad news from day one. Sad situation. My Studio assistant from years back in Miami was from Caracas and educated in the American School. We had dealings with some of the Neutral Spanish dubbing studios there and represented them in Media Markets in Los Angeles. Most the "educated" Venezuelans saw him for who he was but were unable to stop his coup. This is not surprising behavior from him and sadly more to come. My heart goes out to Venezuela. Chavez has put Venezuela back at least a generation.
We all need to keep a watchful eye that Monopolies don't act in a similar way. This type of behavior suffers Belize and stunts it's growth. Short Sited actions like that will only spawn moves to competitors. Loss of consumer faith. Everyone pays for SERVICE. Absolute Power corrupts absolutely.
Of course I am "non political".
