Chavez Is Nothing


To The Editor: In regard to Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez, who insulted President George W. Bush and called him "the devil", and called the United States an "imperialist empire", which I felt was an insult to most Americans. Here's a world leader that is definitely not playing with a full deck and is truly suffering from delusions of grandeur. Well, if he thinks Bush is the devil, then I think Chavez is the antiChrist. It has been said you can judge a man by the company he keeps. Just look at Hugo Chavez's friends, Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, leaders who deny their citizens the right to think and speak in a free atmosphere, not to mention that of the rights of men which doesn't exist in their country. Well, then, who is truly evil here? Sincerely Yours, Frederick R. Bedell Jr. Bellerose To The Editor: In regard to Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez, who insulted President George W.
