The NYT gets useless Hugo Chavez

Interesting Article today in the NYT by Simon Romero. I particularly liked the lede:

CARACAS, Venezuela — This country may be an energy colossus, with the largest conventional oil reserves outside the Middle East and one of the world’s mightiest hydroelectric systems, but that has not prevented it from enduring serious electricity and water shortages that seem only to be getting worse.
That's what a country gets when 21st century socialism sits in: a permanent blackout.
