Por Ahora

R2157456581.jpgBBC on Chavez today at the OAS summit:

But Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez accused the United States of seeking to impose a “global dictatorship.”

“So, they’re going to try to monitor the Venezuelan government through the OAS, they must be joking!” he said, speaking in Caracas shortly before the conference opened on Sunday.

“If there is any government that should be monitored by the OAS, then it should be the US government,” he added.

And in other news from greateramerica, the NY Times runs another in its series of Lula puff pieces.

SuperMe

images.jpgAlphonse Van Worden has thrown this my way… Definitely not up to “responses not anticipated…” but whatever…

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? (Assume you also get baseline superhero enhancements like moderately increased strength, endurance and agility.)
No, I insist on moderately increased strength, endurance and agility… That’s well enough for me… Or whatever superpower would allow me to actually manage to post something on Long Sunday

Which, if any, ‘existing’ superhero(es) do you fancy, and why?
Does this guy count? I fancy him because of his pithy superheroesque way of schpeakin. And his freakin moustache…

OK, here’s the tough one. What would your superhero name be? (No prefab porn-name formulas here, you have to make up the name you think you’d be proud to mask under.)
Easy. Everyman…

>For extra credit: Is there an ‘existing’ superhero with whom you identify/whom you would like to be?
How is this question different than the one two up, about “fancying?” Oh I see, you take it for granted that I don’t “identify with/want to be like” those that I “fancy”… Just how I’m set up, I guess… A sudden fluttering of the heart and it’s all Single White Female, except with 6’5” me with the uncannily familiar haircut…

Pass it on. Three people please, and why….

God, not at the blog stage where I can be sure that anyone actually looks at this page… First I’ll tap Reason Thunders

I’m not sure I like inflicting this on others… Hmmm…. OK – it’s gotta be my good friend, and frequent commenter here, Brad Delong. And, finally, just because it’ll be interesting to hear what he has to say about super-hero identification, Jesus.
