It appears that previous reports that Hugo Chavez’s remains would be put on permanent view – like those of his ideological brethren Lenin and Stalin – were incorrect. Venezuela’s information minister has announced that it will not do so “based on the advice of a Russian medical commission”.
Funeral arrangements for Chavez were not announced.
I’m heartbroken – just heartbroken. I was so hoping one day to have a chance to visit a Latin American version of Lenin’s Tomb.
Oh well, there’s always Fidel . . . .
